Chairman Donlan convened the meeting at 3:40 p.m. The first 
item on the agenda was the Naming of the Library- — UM/Boston. The 
recommendation that the main library on the Harbor campus be named 
the Joseph P. Healey Library after retiring Board Chairman origi- 
nated on the campus and carries the strong endorsement of the Chan- 
cellor and the President, Without discussion, and upon motion made 
and seconded, the Committee unanimously 



UM/Boston — 
Naming of 
the Library 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board name the main 
library at UM/Roston the Joseph P. Healey 
Library. 

The Committee reviewed the request for the Release of Uni- 
versity Property — UM/Amherst, involving a small parcel of land in 
Pelham (approximately 2/3 acre) which formerly was used as a quarry 
for stone to build much of the early campus. After the quarry was 
no longer needed it was filled; no use of the property has been made 
since that time. Mr. Littlefield explained that the University had 
received an inquiry from the Executive Office of Administration and 
Finance whether the Trustees had further use for the property or 
whether they would consider declaring it surplus so that it could 
be sold by the state to an abuttor who had expressed an interest in 
it. Representatives of the Planning Office and Physical Plant as 
well as from academic departments visited the site and determined 
that there is no future use or forseeable need for the site. With 
this assurance, the Committee agreed that it was appropriate to de- 
clare it surplus and without further discussion, moved, seconded and

UM/ Amherst- 
Marshall 
Hall 

Feasibi- 
lity 
Study 

(Doc. T81- 
003) 



The Committee discussed at some length the Marshall Hall Feas- 
ibility Study — UM/ Amherst, which had been commissioned by the BBC at 
the request of the University to determine whether the full scale 
renovation of Marshall Hall to accomodate modern laboratory facili- 
ties would be cost effective. It was explained that Marshall Hall is 
part of a staged renovation program of some of the older science build- 
ings (Fernard, Wilder and French); money had been appropriated through 
deferred maintenance funds for the planning stages of this project. 
After examining the three options available to the University (that 
is, (1) moderate renovation of the building; (2) extensive renovation 
of the building; and (3) building a new laboratory building) the con- 
sultants determined that option 2 was the most financially feasible 
approach, especially given the likelihood of funding for new construc- 
tion at this time. 



Trustee Burack expressed her concern about the wisdom of pro- 
ceeding with planning for extensive renovations given the uncertainty 
of funding for the project work itself. (Funding for the renovation 
of Marshall Hall has been requested in the FY82 Capital Outlay Request.) 
However, it was generally agreed that the planning for the renovation 
should proceed, and upon motion made and seconded, it was

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board approve Scheme B 
described in Doc. T81-003 for the moderniza- 
tion of Marshall Hall and further, to autho- 
rize the Chancellor to proceed with the planning 
for the renovation of Marshall Hall. 



UM/ Amherst — 
Acceptance 
of Knowlton 
Hall 



Mr. Beatty and Mr. Littlefield provided background information 
on the Acceptance of Knowlton Hall — UM/Amherst and assured the Commit- 
tee that the work is essentially complete. They explained that there 
are still some minor items, itemized on the punch list, which need to 
be finished. Some of the items reflect modifications to meet the re- 
cently-amended code for the handicapped access. 

Trustee Burack stated that she had difficulty voting to accept 
a building when certain items remain uncompleted and when three exist 
violations of current code. She was assured that the completion of 
the items on the punch list, would bring the building into full compli- 
ance with the codes, and further, that the vote accepting the building 
is clearly subject to the satisfactory completion of all work itemized 
on the punch list. This procedure she was assured, is routine. There 
was no more discussion, and it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To recommend that the Board accept the renova- 
tion of Knowlton Hall subject to completion of 
those items listed on a punch list on file with 
the Director of Physical Plant at Amherst. 
(UA78-2, Contract #1) 

The Committee next reviewed the Emergency Capital Outlay Items UM/Amherst — 
— UM/Amherst and UM/Worcestar . The exterior brick work on Bartlett UM/Worcester- 
Hall at Amherst is cracking and beginning to bulge outward presenting Emergency 
a serious safety hazard; the ventilation system for the animal quarters Capital 
at the Medical School has never worked properly circulating animal odorsOutlay 
into the Medical School Library. Both situations have been studied in Items 
order to determine their cause and repair approaches, but more defined 
analyses and budget estimates are required. It is therefore recom- 
mended that the Board request that the BBC retain consultants to study 
the problems and recommend the repairs to correct the deficiencies. 
Upon motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the Presi- 
dent to ask the BBC to retain consultants to ana- 
lyze the deficiencies found in the animal quarters 
at the Medical Center and in Bartlett Hall at UM/ 
Amherst . 



Dr. Howe explained the reasons behind the request for a Modifi- 
cation in the Lease Agreement with the Tri-River Development Corpora- 
tion , which owns the facilities in which the Tri-River Health Center is 
housed. The Corporation has been offered an opportunity to buy the 
abutting property under very favorable conditions. The Corporation and 
UM/Worcester have agreed on an arrangement of a special series of rent 
payments over a period of three years that would enable the Corporation 
to purchase the property. Dr. Howe explained that this arrangement re- 
quires a modification to the lease. He further noted that the Corpora- 
tion would be converting its mortgage and make the special payments 
possible; the new rent payments would still be less than the current 
rate under the old mortgage. 

The Committee was supportive of the lease modification, but was 
concerned about the accompanying request to delegate to the Chancellor 
the authority to make similar small adjustments to the lease in the fu- 
ture. It was suggested that the delegation should be made the the Chan- 
cellor "with the approval of the President," and further, with the 
understanding that any major changes in the lease would be brought to 
the Board. It was then moved, seconded and

goals of the Tri-River Health Center in provid- 
ing primary medical care education and training 
to residents and students of the University of 
Massachusetts Medical School and Teaching Hos- 
pital. This delegation of authority is made 
with the understanding that the President will

Mr. Beatty and Mr. Littlefield reviewed for the Committee the 

„ . recent status of five projects on UM/Amherst that were included in the 

Designer

Selection . , , _ N , . — - — 2 — — — : — „ 

, items include: 1) external accoustical modifications for the Graduate 

Research Center; 2) an evaluation study of the leakage problems with 
the Fine Arts Center; 3) fire protection improvements to various build- 
ings; 4) repairs of the library masonry; and 5) a study of alternative 
uses for Tillson Power Plant. Each project was described briefly to 
the Committee. Considerable discussion followed with regard to the 
Tillson Farm project. Mr. Littlefield explained that this project was 
initiated by the Bureau of Building Construction in order to develop 
alternative uses or salvage possibilities for the building. The cam- 
pus has become involved in considering alternatives uses for the plant 
and the Board will be kept posted. 

There were also some questions about when the contracts for 
these projects would be awarded. It was explained that after the items 
were advertised, bids were received and reviewed by the Designer Selec- 
tion Board; recommendations for the award of the contracts for these 
studies have been submitted to the Executive Office for Administration 
and Finance. None of the contracts have yet been awarded. The Trustees 
expressed their interest in seeing Administration and Finance move ex- 
peditiously and indicated that they would be willing to help in any way 
possible to get the projects moving. 

Mr. Quinlan gave a brief report on improvements that are under- 
way on the Worcester campus to improve access for the handicapped.

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 10:10 a.m. President 
Knapp explained that the proposal for the Establishment of the UMass 
Center for Aging had been developed over the past year by an inter- 
campus committee. The proposal has been through several review pro- 
cesses and carries the approval of the Chancellors and the President. 
The project is essentially a research and service program drawing 
upon resources of all the campuses. Courses will not be offered at 
the Center s but will be available on each of the campuses.

on Aging 
(Doc. T81-

Chancellor Tranquada noted that the federal department of 
Health and Human Services (HHS) has shown particular interest in 
this type of program and the University will be in a good position 
to attract funding. Trustee Dennis concurred and offered his assi- 
stance in this area. The motion to approve the establishment of 
the Center was made, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Center on Aging as 
described in Doc. T81-015 . 

President Knapp explained that a proposal for a Ph.D. in Pub- 
lic Health- -UM/Amherst was originally submitted to the University 
Administration two years ago at a time when the University was ex- 
amining University-wide programming in the health area. Since that 
time, the Graduate School at UM/Amherst has worked closely with the 
Medical School to explore cooperative approaches to graduate level

programs in public health. There has been extensive discussion 
about the proposal and the Worcester campus is in full and enthusi- 
astic support of the Ph.D. in Public Health as now presented. With- 
out further discussion, it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the Ph.D. 
program in Public Health at UM/ Amherst as de- 
scribed in Doc. T81-013, for submission to the 
Board of Regents for consideration and approval. 

Provost Greene presented to the Committee the proposal for 
the Establishment of the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies — UM/Boston. 
Although the concept of a master degree program in liberal studies 
is relatively new, similar programs are currently offered success- 
fully at several other institutions across the country. This type 
of program, Provost Greene continued, which offers high-level, in- 
terdisciplinary study within the liberal arts, is particularly ap- 
propriate for non-traditional, urban students and specifically 
fulfills one of the Trustee-approved recommendations made for the 
long-range development of graduate study at the Boston campus. No 
new resources are required for the program; in fact, the program 
takes advantage of the strong faculty resources available in the 
College of Arts and Sciences. There was little discussion of the 
proposal and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the Master 
of Arts Program in Liberal Studies at UM/Boston 
as described in Doc. T81-010 for submission to 
the Board of Regents for consideration and ap- 
proval. 

There was considerable discussion with regard to the proposal 
for the Establishment of the Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences — UM/ 
Boston which was developed in line with the policy guidelines for 
graduate education at UM/Boston as approved by the Board of Trustees. 
The program is interdisciplinary in nature and relates to the spe- 
cial aspects of the Harbor campus. It had undergone careful review 
by outside individuals as well as by individuals on the Amherst cam- 
pus, particularly to ascertain potential duplication and to explore 
the opportunities for inter-campus cooperation in this programmatic 
area.

The President explained that, although the program is sub- 
stantive, he is asking the Board to approve the offering of the de- 
gree with the provision that the campus respond to further questions 
and clarify certain aspects of the proposal to his satisfaction be- 
fore it is forwarded to the Board of Regents. Although this is not 
the usual approach, he wanted the Committee to recognize that there 
are faculty concerns on the Boston campus that the development of 
doctoral level programs has been long overdue as well as concerns 
expressed by the Amherst faculty that that campus is now the only 
campus to offer doctoral level work.

Provost Greene stressed that the approval of this doctoral 
program at this time is important to the morale and well-being of 
the academic life on the campus. 

Professor Vanllmmersen outlined the nature of the program 
and explained that it had been developed in consultation with en- 
vironmental agencies and consulting firms in order to determine 
their need for graduate level study in the environmental sciences. 
Programs in the environmental sciences at other institutions were 
also reviewed. Essentially the program contains three main com- 
ponents: (1) a common core providing basic research concepts and 
techniques as well as management-related issues in the field; (2) 
specialized training and research in one of five areas; and (3) an 
internship which may be undertaken at the student's place of em- 
ployment. Professor Vanllmmersen acknowledged that certain aspects 
of the proposal have drawn questions in the review process, noting 
particularly the issue of coordination and monitoring of the in- 
ternship component; however, details of these arrangements will con- 
tinue to be refined. 

During the discussion that followed, considerable concern was 
expressed by representatives from the Amherst campus about the po- 
tential for duplication in program content with courses currently 
offered at UM/ Amherst. Professor Jennings asked the Committee to 
postpone action on the proposal in order to give the environmental 
science faculty on the Amherst campus an opportunity to review the 
proposal and to consult with the faculty at Boston. It was stressed 
that there was little argument with the program content, but rather 
with the lack of discussion, consultation and coordination between 
the two campuses. 

What emerged during the discussion was the recognition that 
the development of high quality doctoral program on the Boston cam- 
pus is critical to its development as a true university center and 
that this type of programmatic development was in line with the 
special character of the Boston campus and responded to a recog- 
nized need. Further, the Ph.D. program in Environmental Sciences 
is truly interdisciplinary in nature and as such, does not repli- 
cate any specific Ph.D. offered in the University. Nevertheless, 
it was recognized that an open and lively exchange between the 
faculities should continue to take place in connection with this 
program and creative approaches to sharing teaching and research 
resources, especially in highly-specialized areas, should continue 
to be explored. 

The Trustees were also assured that as other graduate level 
programs are developed, there will be more regularized consultation 
among the campuses throughout every stage of the development pro- 
cess. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the Ph.D. 

program in the Environmental Science at UM/Boston

as described in Doc. T81-017; provided how, 
ever, that the campus will respond, to the 
satisfaction of the President, to questions 
that may be raised in the course of further 
review before the program is forwarded to 
the Board of Regents. 

The Committee reviewed the request for the Redesignation of 
the "Four College" Ph.D. in French — UM/Amherst. Originally con- 
ceived as part of the inter-institutional doctoral programs among 
Amherst, Mount Holyoke, Smith and the University, the Ph.D. in 
French has always been essentially a University program. The re- 
designation would reflect this fact. No new resources or program 
changes are involved. The motion was made, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board redesignate the 
Four (i.e. Five) College Ph.D. Program in 
French at UM/Amherst as the UM/Amherst Ph.D. 
Program in French. (Doc. T81-009) 

The Committee considered the request for a Partial Waiver of 
Sabbatical Leave Requirements for Professor Raymond Torto — UM/Boston . 
Professor Torto has been offered an appointment as Commissioner of 
Assessing the City of Boston and has requested a two-year leave with- 
out pay in order to accept. Since he just returned from a year's 
sabbatical in September, Board approval is required to waive the re- 
quirement that he return to the University for the full year follow- 
ing the sabbatical. Professor Torto plans to return to the University 
after the two-year leave and has also agreed to provide teaching and 
related services to the University, equivalent to a full semester, 
throughout the period. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board waive the require- 
ment that Professor Raymond Torto complete the 
remaining semester of his full year of service 
on return from sabbatical leave, with the stip- 
ulation that, over the duration of his leave of 
absence without pay, he shall provide the equiva- 
lent of one full semester of service to the Uni- 
versity. (Doc. T81-012) 

Chairman Troy next asked the Committee to consider the re- 
quest for Waiver of Sabbatical Leave Requirement for Professor Jag 
Bhawan — UM/Worcester . Dr. Bhawan has requested a one year leave 
of absence which immediately follows his sabbatical in order to al- 
low him to complete a two-year program for certification in clinical 
dermatology. Dr. Bhawan has agreed to return to the University 
following his year's leave without pay in accordance with Trustee 
and has signed a letter to that effect. There was no discussion and 
it was moved, seconded and

There was no discussion with regard to the Title Change for 
the Asian Studies Program — UM/Amherst. The new title, Department 
of Asian Languages and Literature, better reflects the current 
course offerings. The redesignation requires no change in the 
staffing, organization or budget. It was moved, seconded and

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Tranquada 

The meeting was called to order at 2:10 p.m. The first item Mid-Year 
considered was Mid -Year Review . It was noted that the review state- Review 
ments are briefer than those of previous years, because it had be- 
come apparent that extensive reviews at mid-year, for a variety of 
reasons, were not cost effective. This year the process had been 
concentrated on a few important elements of the budget. Mr. Stine 
provided a general overview of the review process. Each campus 
then outlined the individual documents prepared for Trustee review. 

At Amherst, a 2.5% increase in overall enrollment had im- 
pacted on the budget. As this increase had been predicted the im- 
pact was not as great as it might otherwise have been. The campus 
is seeking the transfer of $432,000 to the 02 account, to accommo- 
date approved conversion of 03 positions to 02 positions. 

The Medical Center is not seeking any fund transfers as its 
subsidiary accounts are all within the FY81 budget. The Medical 
School had reached its projected enrollment and recruiting efforts 
are underway to fill five of the eight vacant faculty positions. 
It was noted that the student capitation grants provided by the 
federal government had decreased. This trend will continue and 
lead to the eventual elimination of the grants; the campus is tak- 
ing steps to adjust to this loss. 

Chancellor Corrigan reported that Boston, as at Amherst, 
there had been an anticipated and thus manageable increase in

enrollment. However, the campus is faced with a very complex sit- 
uation; several aspects of which are unique. 

In the FY81 Maintenance Budget the 01 salaries account had 
been split into appropriations; one for faculty and classified em- 
ployees; and one for administrative employees. The campus now 
faces a projected deficit of $400,000 in the faculty/classified 
employees appropriation and a projected surplus of $275,000 in the 
administration appropriation. 

Also, the FY81 budget included a unprecedented carryover 
from FY80. This was complicated by the fact that the funds had 
been transferred from the FY80 01 account to the FY81 08 Fuel ac- 
count at the request of the Executive Office of Administraton and 
Finance. The campus hopes to correct this fund inbalance problem 
by a combination of cost saving measures, fund transfers and by 
requesting A&F to transfer the carryover funds back to the salary 
account . 

At this point, Chairman Crain noting that it might have been 
better if A&F had been approached prior to bringing this matter to 
the attention of the Committee, asked if such an approach had any 
hope of success. In the ensuing discussion several points were 
made, including the time constraints involved and the unfortunate 
prospects which would arise if A&F refused to act favorably on the 
campus's request. At the conclusion of the discussion there was 
a consensus that A&F should be asked to reconsider the assignment 
of the carryover funds; however, alternative strategies should be 
prepared. Further, efforts should be made to the conclude the ma- 
ter no later than March 1. Additionally, it was the sense of the 
Committee that the proposed fund transfers should proceed. 

Chairman Crain then said that the Committee had been asked 
to act on two other matters; FY81 Auxiliary Services Trust Fund 
Budget — UM/Amherst and the Delegation of Authority, Five College 
Cooperative Health Care Program . These were discussed briefly and 
it was moved, seconded and

Chairman Dennis convened the meeting at 1:37 p.m. He noted 
that the first item on the agenda was an informational item. At 
the December 18, 1981 meeting of the Committee, representatives of 
the firm of Banks, Finley, White & Co. had agreed that a statement 
on page 36 of their audit of the federal student financial aid pro- 
grams could be misleading. The firm had supplied an amended page 
36 to the Committee on January 19, 1981. 

The Trustees then discussed External Audits of FY80 Amherst External 
Trust Funds . A consortium of three audit firms — Stewart, Benjamin Audits of 
and Brown; Peat, Marwick, Mitchell; and Watson, Rice & Co. — had FY80 Am- 
audited nine trust funds and the Center Services operation. The herst Trust 
trust funds were — Alumni Funds, Student Activities, Transporation Funds 
and Parking, Campus Center, Boarding Halls, Housing Administration, 
Instructional, Student Automatic Services and Oversea Student Pro- 
grams . 

The ten audits contained 58 recommendations; 15 of which 
were repeats from previous audits. The auditors made disclaimers 
of opinion in two of the audits, Student Activities and Housing Ad- 
ministration. In the case of Student Activities the auditors 
stated that they were unable to obtain sufficient documentation 
for the Registered Student Organization accounts. The University's 
response was that the documentation supplied, while difficult to 
work with, was complete. In the case of Housing Administration the 
auditors were unable to obtain an opinion from the Amherst Counsel 
as to the legality of interproject loans and purchases. 



Audits UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

1/27/81 

The Committee then discussed status of FY80 Medical Center 
FY80 Medi- Audits . Mr. Manigault said that the management letters and the 
cal Center campus responses had been received but had yet to be analysed. 
Audits Also, the financial statements are still pending. 

The audits, of the Group Practice and the Hospital Trust 
Funds, had been protracted because of problems with the Medical 
Center's accounting system which stem from a variety of causes — 
lack of personnel, a mid-year switch from a manual system to a 
machine-based system, and data produced by the state mandated ac- 
counting system that was all but unauditable. 

There is a significant difference between the records of 
the Hospital and the state regarding the amount of money trans- 
ferred to the state by the Hospital. Hospital records show trans- 
fers of $1,800,000 which do not show in the state's records. Ef- 
forts are being made to resolve this issue. 



Internal 



Report on

The Committee then discussed Internal Auditor's Report on 



. j. , Trust Fund Interest Account. Mr. Manigault reminded the Committee 

Auditor's — ; : : r— ; : : , ° , . , , 

that he had been asked to report on the discrepancy between the 
cash account and the budget account of the Trust Fund Interest Ac- 
count and to recommend how this could be rectified and how to pre- 
vent a recurrence. 



Part of the problem is attributable to numerous bookkeeping 
errors; however, the main factor was the failure to bring forward 
the FY77 cash balances when the accounting system was refined in 
FY78. Mr. Manigault recommended the following: 

1. Under the direction of the University Controller and 
with the assistance of the Campus Controllers, the 
FY77 ending cash balances for unrestricted funds be 
brought forward to the current general ledger accounts. 

2. The University/Campus Controllers thoroughly analyse 
the Trust Fund Interest Accounts and make the neces- 
sary adjustment to align the cash and budgeted figures 
as of June 30, 1980. 

3. The unusable (because of Trustee/state restrictions) 
June 30, 1980 available budget balances of the Pres- 
dent ' s Office be transferred to the Trustee Reserve 
Account . 

4. In order to comply with a loan agreement, the Cam- 
pus Center at Amherst should immediately repay the 
$60,000 loan to the Trustee Reserve Account, or the 
Trustees should extend the due date of the loan. 

5. All reports on Trust Fund Interest to the President 
and /or the Trustees should be processed through the 
University/Budget Director. 

Mr. Manigault concluded his report by noting that the Presi- 
dent had approved the recommendations. The Committee, after

discussing the matter at some length, concurred with the Presi- 
dent except in the case of the fourth recommendation. It was 
agreed that this was a matter within the purview of the Budget 
and Finance Committee.

Chairman McNeil convened the meeting at 11:45 a.m. Financial Financial Aid 
Aid Reports had been prepared for the Committee's review which pro- Reports 
vided a profile of students receiving assistance as well as outlined 
major concerns facing the financial aid personnel on each of the 
three campuses. Mr. Lyons noted in particular that the growing com- 
plexity of financial aid programs, brought about by the increased 
eligibility of students, will require, especially during a period of 
limited campus-based resources as well as changing national budget 
priorities, more careful attention to how the University can con- 
tinue to meet the financial need of diversified student body. Each 
of the campuses summarized their report. 

Since financial aid and admissions are closely linked, Vice 
Chancellor Madson had arranged for a presentation from Mr. Apodaca 
as well as Ms. Ling. Mr. Apodaca noted the tremendous growth in fi- 
nancial aid dollars — from $17 million in 1978 to $35 million this 
year. Most of this growth, he explained, has taken place in the 
guarenteed student loans programs. There is still an inadequate 
amount of campus-based funding; this year — for the first time — close 
to 20% of the need remained unmet. Mr. Apodaca stressed that the 
increased eligibility of middle-income students for financial aid 
brings into focus sensitive policy questions for the University. 
The University at some point will have to address the issue of needs 
versus eligibility. As the eligibility has increased, the 



SA UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

1/28/81 

appropriations have decreased meaning that less money has to go 
further. This will have inevitable effects on the ability of the 
University to meet the full need of the low-income and minority 
student. Representatives from the Amherst admissions office spoke 
about the document prepared by them which articulated the goals 
for the next ten years in the recruitment and retention of minority 
students, and special programs geared to specific minority groups 
were described. 

The Committee commended the commitment shown by the Amherst 
campus in regard to broadening opportunities for the minority stu- 
dent, but asked what kind of policies can be put in place that 
would continue to meet the special needs of these students given 
the decreasing ability of funds and the increasing student eligi- 
bility for the financial aid programs. The importance of a coor- 
dinated effort in reaching these students — and in disseminating 
current and accurate information with regard to the availability 
and criteria for financial aid in the entire University — was 
stressed. 

Trustee LaVoice expressed his concern that, given the de- 
creased funding available to the University, the support for the 
special programs for minority and low income students would not re- 
main a high priority. He asked that the Committee formally request 
a report on academic support services, particularly those geared to 
minority and low income students. The Committee generally agreed 
that this would be helpful, although it was suggested that such a 
report should not be limited to academic support services for mi- 
nority students alone. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To request the University Administration to pre- 
pare a report on the scope and character of aca- 
demic support services on each of the three campuses. 

Chancellor Corrigan explained that the financial aid office 
at UM/Boston had been moved in an administrative reorganization last 
spring from under the aegis of the student affairs division to an 
"Office of Enrollment Services" which encompasses the activities of 
registrar, admissions and financial aid. This reconfiguration pro- 
vides an opportunity for the campus to provide more coordinated 
services to the student. Ms. Moscarella, the Director of Student 
Financial Management, explained that the reorganization reflected 
a change in the emphasis of services provided to the student, parti- 
cularly an interest in providing assistance to the student in manag- 
ing financial resources available to them during their time at the 
University. 

Trustee Alberto said that the office's change in emphasis and 
location is a positive improvement, but noted that he was still con- 
cerned, as are many students, about the timeliness of the delivery 
of funds to the student. Ms. Moscarella noted that the University 
had instituted a new emergency loan program that gave students money

to purchase books in the period at the start of the semester before 
their financial aid funds were awarded. She also reported that ra- 
pid strides have been made in processing registration and financial 
aid paperwork to allow the office to make the awards in a much 
shorter timeframe. 



SA 
1/28/81 



Lee Hanshaw from the Medical School's financial aid office, 
reported that 100% of the needs of the students at the Medical 
School are met by some form of financial aid. However, she 
stressed that the high cost of medical education meant that stu- 
dents at the Medical School face tremendous debt upon graduation. 

Mr. Madson explained that the Amendments to the Residence 
Hall Contract — UM/Amherst were developed by a joint staff /student 
Residential Committee and reflect refinements to the earlier con- 
tract which was initially approved by the Board in 1979. There 
was no discussion and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

amendments to the Residence Hall Contract 
contained in Doc. T79-034B.

The Committee then reviewed a document prepared at its re- 
quest which summarized Major Student Affairs Issues over the last 
five years and identified certain issues of pressing interest in 
the immediate future. The document, while no means inclusive, is 
intended to provide a brief basic orientation to the new Board of 
Trustees with regard to the activities of the Student Affairs Com- 
mittee.

Trustee LaVoice voiced his concern that the document had 
been prepared without consultation with the students on the Amherst 
campus and took particular exception to the inclusion and charac- 
terization of the Special Activities Fund of the student government 
in the document as a sensitive and unresolved issue. He noted that 
much time had been devoted in the past year to addressing the con- 
cerns of the Trustees with regard to the SATF and felt that the 
issues with regard to financial accountability and the longstand- 
ing deficit in particular had been satisfactorily resolved. 

After considerable discussion, Chairman McNeil pointed out 
that it was important to recognize that the concept behind compil- 
ing the document was to simply given an overview of the issues which 
have come to the attention of the Student Affairs Committee over the 
last five years and to flag those which will require Trustee atten- 
tion in the future. She reiterated that the document had been pre- 
pared by the University Administration at the Committee's request 
and the material from Amherst, which covered the SATF issue, had 
been prepared to assist Mr. Lyons to write the overview. It had 
been included in the package to the Committee simply to provide 
additional information.

Chairman Marks convened the meeting at 2:15 p.m. In the Boston Area 
President's absence, Chancellor Corrigan was asked to bring the Reorganization 
Committee up-to-date on developments in discussions about Reorgani- 
zation of Public Higher Education in the Boston area . Chancellor 
Corrigan began by announcing that the Board of Regents' Task Force 
on Boston Area Reorganization has scheduled a public meeting at 
which representatives of the various segments will be asked to 
speak to the issue of reorganization of the institutions in the 
Boston area. The meeting is scheduled for Monday, February 2. The 
morning session will be devoted to the reorganization proposals for 
the two-year /community colleges; the afternoon sessions (12:30-2:30) 
will concern the plans for four-year institutions, particularly the 
definition of an "urban university." 

Chancellor Corrigan said that the core question emerging from 
the discussions is whether Boston is better serviced by a "city Uni- 
versity" consisting of some configuration of the University of Mass- 
achusetts at Boston and Boston State College and separate from the 
state-wide university system or by an expanded UMass/Boston incorp- 
orating some of the programs currently offered at Boston State in 
tandem with the expanded community college system. The Chancellor 
explained how the three reports submitted to the Task Force were 
developed and outlined his perception of the director of current ac- 
tivity. 

The Committee dicussed the reorganization possibilities at 
length and generally agreed that Monday's presentation before the 
Task Force would be important. It was suggested that the point be 
made that keeping UM/Boston as part of the University maintained 



^

LR p UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS

existing programmatic and resource-sharing ties between the cam- 
puses. Also, the adverse effects on the other two campuses, and 
particularly on Amherst, of any reorganization that would separate 
UM/Boston from the University should be brought to the Regent's 
attention. 



Amendments 
to Reorgani- 
zation 
Legislation 



Mr. Searson outlined the Amendments to the Reorganization 
Legislation which were recently filed by the Governor. The amend- 
ments (H4201) were developed by the counsel of the Board of Regents 
working in close collaboration with counsel for the current seg- 
mental boards. Mr. Searson noted that the amendments as submitted 
incorporate approximately 85% of the proposals originally made by 
the University and represent a significant improvement in the re- 
organization legislation as it currently exists. 

At 4:50 p.m., the discussion drew to a close and Chairman 
Marks adjourned the meeting.

1981 meeting of the Board. 

Noting that this was the last regular meeting of the Board 
as presently constituted, Chairman Healey thanked the Trustees for 
their efforts on behalf of the University over the years. He said 
that serving as Chairman had been an honor and a privilege. He 
concluded by noting that the University had never been in better 
shape with regard to the leadership in the University Administra- 
tion and on the three campuses. President Knapp and Chancellors 
Corrigan, Koffler and Tranquada, in the course of their remarks 
also thanked the Trustees for their contributions to the University,

Chancellor Koffler provided the Board with a quick overview 
of the annual survey of student attitudes and reactions. He also 
reported on faculty activities, noting that several members of the 
faculty had been engaged in the design and provision of instrumen- 
tation for the soon-to-be launched space shuttle. Chancellor 
Koffler also reported that the UM/Amherst band participated in the 
inaugural ceremonies in Washington honoring President Reagan. 

Chancellor Corrigan mentioned that he had recently done a 
partial listing of the honors garnered by the Boston faculty in 
recent years and had found numerous grants, fellowships and awards 
from distinguished institutes such as the National Science Founda- 
tion, the Danforth, Ford and Guggenheim Foundations, which illu- 
strated, he added, the breadth and quality of the faculty's research 
interests. He also noted that a graduate of the Class of 1970, 
William Nickerson, had distinguished himself in helping to free 
the American hostages in Iran as Deputy Under-secretary of the 
Treasury. 

The Chancellor reported that the Library had received a 
grant surveying 19th century public welfare and private charitable 
institutions as well as contemporary community based voluntary 
groups in order to determine the need for collecting and preserv- 
ing the papers of such groups for research purposes. One such 
agency, the Massachusetts Society of Prevention to Cruelty to Child- 
ren, had donated its archives to the library. It was hoped that 
this would be the first major collection in the area of social 
history, one the campus' particular interests. 

Chancellor Tranquada reported that the cooperative agreement 
with the Shanghai First Medical College would soon become operative 
with the arrival of four faculty members from the College. Grants 
from the Norton Company, the Government of China and the Hospital 
would cover their expenses while in the U.S.

In January the Hospital had initiated the use of an innova- 
tive cardiac transport system. Essentially, the system is a am- 
bulance modified to be a complete mobile coronary unit. 

A sign of the growing maturity of the Medical Center, Chan- 
cellor Tranquada continued, is the appointment of Thomas Edwards, 
a 1975 graduate of the Medical School, to the Department of Anes- 
theology. Dr. Edwards is the second such appointment, joining John 
Rothman, a graduate of 1974. Finally, a grant of $95,000 had been 
received for continuing education in emergency medical care.

Given the nature of the next item of business, Chairman 
Healey asked Trustee Troy to assume the chair temporarily. On so 
doing, Trustee Troy asked Trustee Donlan to report for the Build- 
ings and Grounds Committee. 

Trustee Donlan said that the recommendation for Naming the 
Library at UM/Boston the Joseph P. Healey Library, had been sup- 
ported by all members of the Committee. Without discussion it was 
then moved, seconded and

their kind gesture. Trustee Donlan then continued his report. 
The matter of Release of University Property involves the site of 
a quarry in Pelham which was of no further use to the University

Three options with regard to the Marshall Hall Renovation — 
UM/Amherst had been considered — a modest renovation, extensive 
renovation or a new building. The Committee agreed tht the second 
option is the most feasible. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve Scheme B described in Doc. T81-003 
for the modernization of Marshall Hall and 
further, to authorize the Chancellor to pro-

Trustee Troy then reported on the Faculty and Educational 
Policy Committee meeting on January 21. Trustee Troy explained 
the concept for the UMass Center on Aging had been developed over 
the course of a year and a half by an inter-campus committee. While 
the Center would be located at Worcester, it would draw on the re- 
sources of each of the campuses. The goals of the proposed Center 
are to encourage and facilitate research on the process and problems 
of aging; to foster and organize programs to benefit the elderly; to 
encourage and coordinate a multidisciplinary curriculum; and to serve

The Committee considered the Ph.D. Program in Public Health 
— UM/Amherst. This proposal had first been submitted about two 
years ago at a time when the University had been examining its work 
in the health care area as a whole so there had been some delay in 
bringing this Ph.D. proposal to the Board. In the interim, there 
has been much study and consultation on the Amherst campus as well 
as consultation with Worcester. The staff of the Medical Center 
supports the proposal. Without discussion, it was moved, seconded 
and

The Committee also recommended approval of the M.S. Program 
in Liberal Studies— UM/Boston which is an interdisciplinary program 
involving the humanities and the social and natural sciences. Ap- 
proval of the program will not require additional resources. With- 
out discussion, it was moved, seconded and

Trustee Troy reported that the Committee had had a lengthy 
discussion about the proposed Ph.D. Program in Environmental Sci- 
ences — UM/Boston, which is a result of long planning and considera- 
tion by the campus: it is interdisciplinary in nature, involving 
faculty in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, anthropology 
and management. There is an internship component in the program 
which needs further clarification and definition, which will be 
done before the proposal is submitted to the Board of Regents for 
approval. Trustee Troy explained that several concerns about the 
establishment of the program were raised and discussed at the meet- 
ing. Of particular concern was the question whether the program 
would duplicate course offerings already available on the Amherst 
campus. However, the Committee agreed that the program was well 
thought out, imaginative, and fell well within the Trustee-approved 
guidelines for graduate education on the Boston campus. The Commit- 
tee voted to recommend that the Board approve the program. 

Professor Frank then read a prepared statement reiterating 
the concerns about potential duplication as well as several other

issues. Board members responded, however, by expressing their con- 
viction that the Ph.D. program in Environmental Sciences had been 
well-planned to accomodate a student population in the metropoli- 
tan Boston area professionally involved in enviromental fields. 
These students would not have access to the courses offered at UM/ 
Amherst. The Trustees further pointed out that the interdisciplin- 
ary nature of the program reflected an effective use of resources 
already on the Boston campus and did not duplicate any existing 
doctoral program at the University. It was then moved, seconed and

Torto at Boston has been offered an appointment as Commissioner of 
Assessing for the City of Boston. Since he had returned from sab- 
batical leave in September, he has only completed one half of the 
required full year of service. He has agreed to provide the equi- 
valent of a full semester of service to the University through the 
duration of his 2-year leave of absence. Professor Bhawan wishes 
to complete his Certification in Dermatology and needs an extended 
leave to do so. In accordance with Trustee policy, he has agreed 
in writing to return following the second year. Without discussion 
it was moved, seconded and

Trustee Burack voted against the motion, stating that she felt 
that compensation issues were the province of the Board of Regents. 

Trustee Dennis reported on the activities of the Committee 
on Audits over the past year. He first asked the Board to approve 
an amendment to the Audit Protocols which would speak to the issue 
of audits and small business /minority /women-owned firms. Without 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and

The Committee, Trustee Dennis continued, had also reviewed 
audits of the Trust Funds at Amherst and at the Medical Center. 
The audits at Amherst are satisfactory. Those at the Medical Cen- 
ter raise certain issues, which will require the Chancellor at the 
campus to become more involved in the audit process. Trustee 
Dennis then read the annual report of the Committee, and in his 
concluding remarks, urged that the new Board of Trustees continue 
the Audit Committee.

Amendments 
to Reorgani-

Trustee Marks reported that the Long-Range Planning Commit- 
tee met on January 28. The Committee was apprised of the status 
of two topics — Reorganization of Public Higher Education in Boston , 
which is still an area of some uncertainty; and Amendments to the 
Reorganization Legislation establishing the Board of Regents and 
the new Boards of Trustees, which address previously expressed con- 
cerns of the Committee. 

Trustee McNeil reported that the Committee on Student Affairs 
met on January 28 and reviewed the Financial Aid Reports from the 
three campuses. She noted the problems created by the increased 
eligibility and the reduction of funding which strains the ability 
of the financial officers to meet the total needs of students, par- 
ticularly low income students. Also, as an aid for the incoming 
Board of Trustees, the Committee had asked staff to prepare a study

of issues that the Committee had dealt with over the last five 
years, emphasizing items of continuing concern. 

The single action item was Residence Hall Contract Amend- 
ments — UM/ Amherst. The amendments refine further the basic con- 
tract approved by the Board in 1978. The Committee was assured 
that the development of the amendments involved widespread consul- 
tation on campus. Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and

Hall Contract contained in Doc. T79-034A. 

In lieu of a report from the Delegate to the Board of Higher 
Education, Ms. Clausen extended her personal thanks to the Trustees 
who had served as Delegates to the BHE over the years for their con- 
tributions. 

Chairman Healey asked the Board, in view of the transition 
from Board to Board, to authorize the President, on a temporary 
basis, to exercise the delegable powers of the Board. Without

Trustee Robsham, who had been designated convener by the 
Board of Regents, called the meeting to order at 2;00 p.m. At his 
suggestion, the Board agreed that Ms. Hurd continue as Secretary 
until such time as the officers of the Board are elected. The 
Trustees also agreed that the next regular meeting of the Board 
should be held on April 1, 1981. Trustee Robsham then asked if 
there were any additions or changes to the minutes of the previous 
meeting of the Board. There were none and it was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the February 4, Approval of 

1931 meeting of the Board as circulated. Minutes of 



The Trustees discussed two organizational issues — the need 
to review and amend the current By-Laws of the Board (Doc. T76-051, 
D78) and the procedure by which officers of the Board and chairmen 
and members of the standing committees would be nominated and 
elected. After a brief discussion, it was agreed that a Nominat- 
ing Committee and a By-Laws Committee should be established to 
work on those matters through March and come to the Board with rec- 
omendations on April 1. Trustee Troy agreed to chair the Nominat- 
ing Committee and Trustee Baldwin volunteered to serve on that 
Committee. Trustees Quinn and Knowles agreed to serve on the By- 
Laws Committee; Trustee Quinn agreed to serve as chair. Trustee 
Robsham indicated that he would talk with Trustees Caruso and Tower, 
who were not present at the meeting, to determine their interest in 
serving on either of the two organizational committees. He also

indicated that he would talk with Trustee Costin following the 
meeting to see on which committee he would like to serve. 

President Knapp noted that the Board of Regents had ar- 
ranged regional Trustee orientation sessions for the local boards. 
The University Board of Trustees had been invited to attend three 
separate orientation meetings. President Knapp said he had dis- 
cussed this situation with the Board of Regents' staff, since he 
felt it might be more appropriate for the Trustees to attend only 
one session as a group. It was agreed that President Knapp would 
bring this matter to the Trustees' attention and that they would 
determine how they wished to handle the orientation. After some 
discussion, the Board agreed to attend only one session — the April 
14 orientation program at UM/Boston. Trustee Robsham added that 
the University Administration in conjunction with the Secretary's 
Office would plan an orientation session dealing specifically with 
issues facing the University at a later date. 

Turning to the regular business of the meeting, the Trustees 
considered the Award of an Honorary Degree to Bernhard Stoeckle, 
Rector of the University of Freiburg. President Knapp explained 
that for a number of years the University of Massachusetts had par- 
ticipated in a faculty and student exchange with the University of 
Freiburgh. This program has been particularly rewarding for the 
University, and the granting of an honorary degree to the Rector 
would recognize the valuable mutual relationship which has existed. 
It was then moved, seconded and

Establishment

Endowment 
Fund 



VOTED : To award the honorary degree Doctor of Humane 
Letters to Bernhard Stoeckle; further to 
authorize the President to bestow the degree 
while at the University of Freiburg. 

The Board next considered the Establishment of the Joseph 
P. Healey Endowment Fund . The fund is intended to recognize in a 
permanent fashion the contributions Joseph Healey made to the Uni- 
versity during his twenty-one years as a Trustee and eleven years 
as Chairman of the Board. Contributions to the fund are being sol- 
icited from corporations as well as individuals who have had a 
special relationship with the University and the Board during the 
years of Mr. Healey 's leadership. The response to the fund has 
been very positive. President Knapp explained that it is now nec- 
essary to establish the fund formally in order to accept the gifts, 
to set up a bank account and to invest the fund. Although it is 
customary to stipulate the purposes of an endowment fund upon its 
establishment, the Trustees were asked to establish the fund with 
the understanding that the purposes would be approved at a later 
date when the size of the endowment is known. It was then moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED ; To establish the Joseph P. Healey Endowment 
Fund, the purpose (s) of which fund will be 
defined at a later date.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Knapp then raised several issues which relate to 
the structure of the University within the public higher education 
system in the Commonwealth. The Regents' Task Force on the Reorg- 
anization of Public Higher Education in the Boston area voted to 
recommend the merger of UM/Boston and Boston State College. The 
Task Force left pending, however, any recommendation for the gov- 
ernance structure for the merged institution. Two models in par- 
ticular have been under discussion: 1) Boston State College would 
be merged into the University system as part of UM/Boston, governed 
by the existing Board of Trustees; or 2) the merged institution 
would be a free-standing University — perhaps to be called the Met- 
ropolitan University of Boston — with its own Board of Trustees 
separate from the present University of Massachusetts system and 
reporting directly to the Board of Regents. 

Discussions of this issue have raised several questions, 
particularly on the Amherst campus , about how the separate campuses 
should relate to the Board of Trustees and the Board of Regents as 
well as whether there is a continuing need for a central admini- 
stration or President's Office. 

The Board was informed of a special meeting of the UM/ Amherst 
Faculty Senate at which two resolutions passed by the Faculty Senate 
Rules Committee will be considered. The first resolution, given the 
immenent reorganization and proposed merger in Boston, calls for the 
Board of Regents to establish two separate Boards of Trustees — one 
for UM/Boston and one for UM/ Amherst and UM/Worcester. The second 
resolution calls for the Regents to examine the need for the central 
President's Office. 

Each of the Chancellors was invited to comment on the effect 
of separating UM/Boston from the university system. Dr. Howe, rep- 
resenting Chancellor Tranquada, stressed the fact that currently 
none of of the recognized top echelon medical schools in the coun- 
try is a free-standing institution; all are associated with a uni- 
versity. This it is imperative for the medical school to continue 
its close association with the university system in order to main- 
tain its high quality and its standing nationally. Dr. Peter Viles, 
supported Dr. Howe's remarks, stressing the importance of the uni- 
versity structure to the Medical School. 

Chancellor Corrigan commented that he has been under extra- 
ordinary pressure to consider working to make UM/Boston a separate 
institution on the assumption that the Board is dominated by "Am- 
herst interests," which have inhibited growth at Boston. Chancel- 
lor Corrigan stated that these claims do not square with the facts. 
The size of the campus budget and the fine physical plant clearly 
attest to the Trustees' commitment to UM/Boston and its mission to 
provide the metropolitan area with a public university offering a 
quality undergraduate program and a selective, quality graduate 
program. The Boston campus is now at the point where it would soon

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

fulfill this mission. The campus would not be better off as a 
separate institution. 

Chancellor Koffler stated that he had come to UM/Amherst 
with a commitment to the University system and he is still so com- 
mitted. However, he noted that many current issues have unsettled 
the faculty. Many faculty members feel that the Office of the Pres- 
ident and the Board have not been effective in arguing the case of 
the campus before the Legislature and, facing difficult issues of 
reorganization and resource allocation, are now at the point of be- 
lieving that the campus might fare better as a freestanding insti- 
tution. 

Professor Frank said he believed that the Faculty Senate at 
Amherst would approve the two proposed resolutions. While the fac- 
ulty had very positive feelings toward Amherst, there is also a 
widespread attitude among the faculty that the Board and the Office 
of the President have not been effective as they might be in the 
matter of resources. He also noted that there is serious concern 
about the future development of Ph.D. programs at Boston. 

Trustee Baldwin asked if there were any action that would 
defuse the concerns of the faculty at Amherst. Noting that it was 
perhaps unfair to ask, Professor Frank commented that an assurance 
that there would be no further Ph.D. programs at Boston on the next 
few years would provide some reassurance to the Amherst faculty. 

Trustee Troy said he was baffled by the attitude of the fac- 
ulty at Amherst; at present there is a Board sympathetic to the 
University in its parts and as a whole and with coherent experience 
in dealing with the campuses. If the expectation were that there 
would be a fairer distribution of resources if the campus were sep- 
arated, this probably would not happen. An independent UM/ Boston 
would quickly become a large institution which would develop a mo- 
mentum and strive for a massive Ph.D. program. Trustees also 
pointed out that, given the highly politicized nature of the Com- 
monwealth and the concentration of population in the eastern por- 
tion of the state, the breaking up of the University would almost 
certainly lead to less support for Amherst rather than more. 

After considerable discussion, the Trustees present unani- 
mously agreed that the University should continue as a statewide 
system with a central administration and a strong Presidency. It 
was suggested that this should be expressed in a statement addressed 
to the Board of Regents. Trustee Troy was asked to draft such a 
statement. 

While Trustee Troy was absent, the Chancellors and Dr. Howe 
reported on recent activities on their respective campuses. 

On his return Trustee read the following resolution: 

The Trustees wish to affirm their belief in the 
state-wide system of the University of Massachusetts,

with its flagship Amherst campus, its urban campus 
in Boston, and the Worcester medical campus. The 
Trustees believe that this system, in order to op- 
erate most effectively, must have a strong central 
office led by the University President and assisted 
by adequate professional staff. 

Under the former Board of Trustees and presiden- 
tial administrations, this system had proved its 
effectiveness in carrying out the basic University 
mission of providing distinguished undergraduate 
and graduate education in both academic and pro- 
fessional fields. We feel that each campus gains 
strength through its relations with the others 
and that the overall perspective developed through 
experience and coherent planning by a single body 
of Trustees working with a central administration 
are indispensable for the further growth and sta- 
bility of the University of Massachusetts. 

A University system governed by a single Board 
of Trustees that is commited to the good of the 
whole institution is assured of a fair and care- 
fully-considered distribution of available re- 
sources. We feel that if the University is broken 
up, the individual campuses will find themselves 
in competition for resources — a competition that 
will be resolved not by a well-informed and dedi- 
cated Board of Trustees, but by the vagaries of 
the political process, where only too often issues 
are decided and resolved on other than educational 
grounds . 

In view of these considerations, this Board of 
Trustees strongly urges the Board of Regents to 
support the recommendation that the University of 
Massachusetts remain a statewide university system 
with a strong central office directed by the Pres- 
ident and an adequate professional staff. 

After a brief discussion it was agreed that the statement ex- 
pressed the position of the Board very well, and that it should be 
forwarded forthwith to the Board of Regents. 

There was no further business to come before the Board and 
the meeting was adjourned at 4:35 p.m.

tions to the minutes of the prior meeting of the Board. There were 
none and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the March 4, 1981 
meeting of the Board of Trustees. 



Approval of 
Minutes of 
Prior Meeting 



President Knapp, in the course of his report, noted that the 
Board of E.egents at its next meeting will address several major is- 
sues including tuition policy and reorganization of public higher 
education in the Boston area. The University will be represented 
at the public hearings on these issues. Collective bargaining is 
going forward — the Governor has approved six classified contracts; 
four additional classified contracts are still under negotiation. 
The agreement with the faculty and librarians has been sent to the 
Governor. 



President ' s 
Comments 



Chancellor Koffler said that the Amherst campus has hosted 
two very successful events — a conference of the Massachusetts Music 
Education Association and a symposium honoring Professor John Strong 
upon his retirement. Research grants and contracts at Amherst con- 
tinue to increase markedly over last year; however, there is concern 
over possible cuts in the funding for the recently opened Small Bus- 
iness Development Center. 

Chancellor Corrigan reported that research grants and con- 
tracts at the Boston campus have also increased; they are now at the 
highest level in the school's history. The Chancellor noted that 
the campus is in the process of making arrangements to ensure that

UM/Boston will be strongly represented at the Regents hearing on 
tuition and reorganization. 

Chancellor Tranquada reported that the Liaison Committee on 
Medical Education voted to accredit the Medical School for a five 
year period. Previous accreditations had been on a provisional 
basis. He noted that the Teaching Hospital anticipates a benchmark 
of sorts during the month of April — the opening of the 300th bed. 
He also reported that a recent report on medical school faculties 
showed that 12 of the 27 graduates of the Medical School who prac- 
tice medicine are now faculty members at various medical schools. 

Trustee Robsham then called for the report of the By-Laws 
Committee. Trustee Quinn said the Committee met on March 20 and 
was found to be succinct and concise, particularly in light of the 
relatively small size of the Board. Several changes, which tight- 
ened and clarified the language of the draft, were agreed upon. 
One more significant change was the deletion of any reference to 
the Board of Trustees Statement on University Governance (Doc. T73- 
078) . The Committee felt that the statement should undergo tho- 
rough review and that it should be discussed at a future meeting of 
the Board. After a brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To approve the By-Laws of the Board set forth 
in Doc. T81-028; further, to rescind the By-

Committees

of the 
Board 
1981-82 
(Doc. T81-

Trustee Troy then reported for the Nominating Committee. In 
line with practice, the Committee had tried to contact all members 
of the Board to determine their preferences for committee assignments. 

The Committee had also formally discussed the advisability of 
experimenting with a division of labor among individual committee mem- 
bers. Given the many tasks assigned to each committee it might be 
advisable for one Trustee to assume major responsibility for one 
area, e.g. student affairs within the Academic and Student Affairs 
Committee. 



After a brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To confirm and approve the officers and com- 
mittees of the Board set forth in Doc. T81- 
025B, all to serve until the 1982 annual 
meeting of the Board. 

Trustee Robsham turned the chair over to the newly-elected 
Chairman, Trustee Quinn, who expressed his thanks for the honor the 
Board had bestowed upon him. 

Chairman Quinn called for discussion of Revised Rules and 
Regulations of the Group Practice — UM/Worcester . Chancellor 
Tranquada said the revisions had been designed to clear up certain

ambiguities and, in a few instances, correct errors in the present Revised Rules 

Rules and Regulations as well as to provide greater flexibility in and Regula- 

the administration of the Group Practice reserve fund. None of tions of the 

the proposed revisions would increase the salary of faculty pre- Group Practice 

sently on the staff. (Doc. T81-

Chancellor Tranquada provided an overview of the group prac- 
tice plan. Mr. Searson identified two areas in the proposed rules 
and regulations which required clarification and he he provided 
language for the two changes. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To amend Section 2 of the proposed Rules and 
Regulations of the Group Practice (Doc. T81- 
024) by striking out subsection (a) and in- 
serting in place thereof the following: 

"(a) 'Annual Base Salary' shall mean that 
portion of the total compensation paid by 
the University as fair and adequate compen- 
sation for the clinical faculty member's 
teaching, supervision and administrative 
responsibilities, exclusive of patient care." 

Further, to amend Section 13 (a) of Doc. 
T81-024 by striking out paragraph (1) and 
inserting in place thereof the following: 

"(1) Annual Base Salary. The annual base 
salary is that portion of the total com- 
pensation paid by the University as fair 
and adequate compensation for the clinical 
faculty member's teaching, supervision 
and administrative duties, exclusive of

General Laws, Chapter 75. If the state

several land grant institutions on a formula basis. As the intent 
of the act is to suuport agricultural and mechanical education, the 
Amherst campus is given the larger portion. After a brief discus- 
sion, it was moved, seconded and

Dean; Mr. Fosselman, Director of Fiscal Affairs; Ms. Wyatc, As- 
stant Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance 

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 12:15 p.m. The 
first part of the agenda was devoted to a general orientation to 
the University's budget process, with particular emphasis on the 
timetable under which various stages of the budget process are com- 
pleted. Major issues which will face the Committee during a time 
of diminishing resources, i.e., the need to continue the develop- 
ment of adequate management systems and the need to identify dir- 
ections that can be pursued in order to reallocate available 
resources to maintain the University's long-term viability were 
discussed. 



I 



The materials which had been distributed to the Committee 
included the Fee-Based Budgets — UM/Amherst and UM/Boston. Ms. 
McDemmond outlined the types of fees involved in the revenue-based 
budgets on the campus and the process by which the fees are estab- 
lished and the budgets are developed. This year's budgets include 
about a 9% increase in the mandatory fees, particularly the board- 
ing and residence hall fees. After all fee increases and new fees 
have been thoroughly justified and reviewed by the campus, she ex- 
plained, the fees are approved by the Board in December. The bud- 
gets are then developed on the basis of the new rates and then 
submitted to the Board for approval. She noted particular funds 
which presented some problems and explained what measures were 
being undertaken to alleviate the difficulties.

At the end of Ms. McDemmond ' s presentation and the brief 
discussion which followed, President Knapp noted that he and the 
Board had not yet received a budget for the Facilities Planning 
Trust Fund. He stated his intention to prohibit any expenditures 
during FY82 if this fund is not received and approved by the Board 
by the start of the fiscal year. Ms. McDemmond assured the Presi- 
dent and the Committee that this budget is in process, and she an- 
ticipated that it would be submitted to the Chancellor for his 
review within the next two weeks. It would be submitted to the 
Board shortly thereafter. 

Chancellor Corrigan explained that given the recent in- 
creases in tuition, every effort has been made to hold down the 
fees on the Boston campus to the absolute minimum. There was no 
questions on the budgets as presented and it was 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY82 
Revenue-Based Budget at UM/ Amherst and the 
FY82 Fee-Based Budget at UM/Boston. (Doc. T81- 
001A and 001B)

pital Bud- 
get and the

Commission

(Doc. T81-

The FY82 Hospital Budget and the Rate Setting Commission 
Request were then discussed. Chancellor Tranquada noted that the 
Hospital is required by law to have its budget and rate change re- 
quests before the state's Rate Setting Commission by May 1, which 
created a problem with scheduling these items for prior Board ap- 
proval. However, he noted that modifications can be made after 
submission if necessary. The document before the Board was approved 
by the Hospital Management Board. 

The Chancellor outlined the background of the establishment 
of the Hospital Trust Fund, which essentially puts the Hospital on 
a fiscally self-sufficient basis. Ms. Wyatt reviewed the budget in 
some detail and the process by which it was developed. The Hospi- 
tal is requesting an overall increase in rates of 11% compared to 
a national average rate increase of 13%. There was no further 
questions and it was

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY82

increase in rates described in Doc. T81-032; 
further, to authorize the Chancellor to sub- 
mit the rate increases to the State Rate 
Setting Commission. 

The End of Year Budget Transfers — UM/Boston were reviewed. 
President Knapp referred to the problem with the personnal accounts, 
which were identified during mid-year review, and asked Chancellor 
Corrigan and Vice Chancellor Baxter to explain the proposed trans- 
fer intended to correct this situation as well as the problems 
which may be expected next year because of the transfers. There was 
consensus that the proposed transfers, i.e., the transfer of funds 



-2-

from the maintenance and equipment accounts to cover the deficit 
in the personnel accounts, was essentially the only viable solu- 
tion, and it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the End

forth in Doc. T8.-040. 

Mr. Beatty presented the background on the proposed Gift 
of the W.E.B. DuBois Boyhood Homesite in Great Barrington, MA. 
There are no buildings on the property which covers about 3 acres. 
There are minimal maintenance costs and the University's present 
insurance policy would cover the homesite. The site has been des- 
ignated a national historic landmark. Upon the President's rec- 
ommendation that the University proceed to explore the acceptance 
of this gift, the Committee

further, to ask the President to convey to

tion for this offer. (Doc. T81-033)

Chairman Troy convened the meeting of the Committee on Aca- 
demic and Student Affairs at approximately 2:10 p.m. Chancellor 
Tranquada made the presentation in support of the Establishment of 
a Masters Degree in Medical Science — UM/Worcester. He explained 
that the M.S. would be awarded to those students who ha completed 
the first two years of the existing doctoral program in the Medi- 
cal Sciences, but who, for one reason or another, could not com- 
plete the final research requirement for the Ph.D. He stressed the 
fact that no student would be admitted to this program with the in- 
tent of obtaining the M.S. There was every indication, Chancellor 
Tranquada continued, that as the medical science program matures, 
it is probable that the master's degree will be seldom awarded. No 
new resources will be required and this will represent no expansion 
of the existing program. Upon motion made and seconded, it was

The Committee considered the Appointment of Daniel L. 
Padberg as Professor of Food and Resource Economics with Tenure — 
UM/Amherst. Dr. Padberg has been selected as the new Dean of the 
College of Food and Natural Resources after a thorough and lengthy 
national search. Both President Knapp and Provost Baritz spoke 
very highly of Dr. Padberg 's academic qualifications and supported 
his appointment strongly. There were no questions, and the Commit- 
tee moved, seconded and

Provost Baritz also presented to the Committee the next 
agenda item, the Appointment of George W. Spiro as Associate Pro- 
fessor of General Business and Finance with Tenure — UM/Amherst . 
Professor Spiro currently is tenured in the Department of Manage- 
ment and Professional Studies at UM/Boston. His appointment will 
bring to Amherst critically needed strength and leadership to the 
business law group within the department, and his appointment has 
been supported at all levels. Chancellor Corrigan agreed that Pro- 
fessor Spiro is an extraordinary gifted professor and commented 



-2-

that his appointment at Amherst will be a significant loss to the 
program at UM/Boston. He asked that it be noted that he regretted 
that at no time was he contacted in either an official or unoffi- 
cial way regarding this appointment. Provost Baritz apologized

The Committee then reviewed three Appointments with Tenure — 
UM/Worcester . Chancellor Tranquada indicated that he was pleased 
to be able to bring to the Committee the appointment of Dr. Michael 
Czech as Professor of Biochemistry with tenure. Dr. Czech is also 
being proposed as Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry after 
an extensive national search and brings with him an outstanding 
national reputation for his research on diabetes. Dr. William Chick, 
who is recommended for appointment as Professor of Biochemistry and 
Medicine with tenure, will also bring tremendous strength to the 
department and, along with Dr. Czech, will form the strong founda- 
tion for an outstanding center for laboratory research and investi- 
gation in the area of diabetes. 

The third appointment with tenure under consideration was 
the appointment of Dr. Christopher Longcope as Professor of Ob- 
stetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Longcope enjoys a well-established 
reputation as a teacher and a clinician as well as a scientific 
investigator.

The Committee then reviewed the Awards of Tenure — UM/Am-

group of tenure candidates is small continuing a trend which was 
begun several years ago. The stringent tenure review process was 
noted, and the Committee commented on the generally excellent cali- 
bre of those candidates brought before it for review. Chairman 
Troy did express some concern about the adequacy of the documenta- 
tion that was forwarded to the Committee, noting particularly a 
few cases where the summary sheets were not as detailed or compre- 
hensive as he would have preferred. It was suggested that the 
letters from the Chancellors on each of the tenure candidates be 
included in the materials sent to the Committee in the future.

Daniel I. Padberg as Dean of the School of Food and Natural Re- 
sources — UM/Amherst. Dr. Padbert is a widely recognized agricul- 
tural economist who brings a broad range of experience to the Uni- 
versity. His appointment is the culmination of a long national 
search process. The Committee on Academic and Student Affairs re- 
viewed his appointment as Professor of Food and Resource Economics 
with tenure and voted to recommend Board concurrence with the Pres- 
ident's award of tenure. The Committee noted the academic excel- 
lence of this appointment and it was moved, seconded and

The Committee also reviewed the Appointment of Charles Desmond 
as Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs — UM/Boston. Mr. Desmond has 
held this position on an acting basis since June, 1981. He has 
been very effective in this role and it was with some enthusiasm 
that the Chancellor and the President made this recommendation to 
the Trustees. It was then moved, seconded and

1, 1981 as presented and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the April 1, 1981 
meeting of the Board of Trustees. 

Chairman Quinn expressed appreciation to Chancellor Koffler 
and the Amherst campus community for the warm hospitality with 
which the Trustees were received. Referring to the dedication cer- 
emony for the VAX computer in the School of Engineering that morn- 
ing, the Chairman also made special note of the generosity of the 
Digital Equipment Corporation and the exciting potential of the 
continued cooperation between the University and the high technol- 
ogy industry in the Commonwealth. 

After a number of routine announcements, the President read 
a statement to the Board concerning the potential fiscal crisis 
facing the University arising from major reductions in the Univer- 
sity's budget currently comtemplated and under discussion by the 
Legislature. A copy of his statement is appended to these minutes. 

In the discussion which followed the President's statement, 
the need to communicate the serious negative impact if any budget 
reduction on the University to the Legislature was strongly empha- 
sized. Alumni, parents and students have been kept apprised of the 
status of the budget, and have been very active in writing and 
speaking to legislators. President Knapp indicated that his state- 
ment was sent to the Governor, the President of the Senate and the

proposed for the next fiscal year. The budget was reviewed by the 
Hospital Management Board before it was reviewed by the Trustee 
Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs. Trustee Knowles com- 
mented that the budget proposal was well presented and clear and 
reported that the Committee had voted to recommend Board approval.

Trustee Knowles reviewed the several Compensation Issues 
which had been discussed by the Committee. The Committee recom- 
mended increases in the Dean's Compensation; these increases are 
now made possible by the legislation excluding their salaries from 
the 1% limitation on overscale appointments. There was some dis- 
cussion of the document prepared in support of the Dean's Compen- 
sation (Doc. T81-044) . Trustee Robsham indicated that the manner 
in which the salary information was arranged made it appear that 
the Deans were being granted disproportionately large raises. The 
fact is that the increases reflect a conversion from the academic 
year schedule (10 month) to a calendar year schedule and the rela- 
tive complexities of the various schools as well as merit increases 
and a cost of living increase. It was agreed that another document 
would be prepared that would more clearly array that data and, on 
that basis, it was moved, seconded and

the Deans listed in Doc. T81-044.

Statement by President David C. Knapp 
to the Board of Trustees 
May 13, 1981 



Mr. Chairman and Members of the Board: 



I wish to alert the Board to a potential University fiscal 
crisis quite as severe as that publicized in state and local 
government generally. In recent weeks, the State House corri- 
dors have been rife with rumors that public higher education 
appropriations will be reduced anywhere from three to fifteen 
percent below levels initially recommended by the Governor. 
Most recently, the Governor has asked, through the Board of 
Regents, that public higher education share in the cuts which 
he will propose this week in a revised Executive budget. We 
do not yet know how the changes will affect the University. 

I believe the Board should be fully aware at this time 
of the devastating impact of such possible reductions. Let 
me make two preliminary comments. 

First, to the best of my knowledge, the only revenue in- 
crease to the state yet enacted is that which will flow from 
the increased tuition paid by public college and university 
students and their parents. The tuition increase from the 
University alone is projected to yield at least $5 million 
to the State Treasury.

2-

as no 



other group in the state has as yet . 

Second, unlike the case of public elementary and secon - 
dary schools, reduced funding for the University cannot be 
tied to declining enrollment . In fact, next year we expect 
to have at least as many students of the same quality as we 
had last year and the year before and the year before that. 
Admissions applications, especially transfers, remain strong. 
Reductions in appropriations would simply mean that next year's 
students would receive less in education and service than those 
who came before them. Paying more for less would be fact, not 
rhetoric . 

Just as the University must teach the same number of stu- 
dents, so we must continue to carry the same level of respon- 
sibility for research, public service, and technical assistance, 
Indeed, the level is even higher than three years ago, as more 
and more groups within the state have turned to us for know- 
ledge and help. 

Now to the impact. I have stated to the Board previously 
that the original Executive budget, through less than level 
funding under inflationary conditions, provided for basic 




I 



I 



Statement by President Knapp to the Board of Trustees 
May 13, 1981

reductions in all expenditure categories, except energy--and 
especially in personnel and equipment. I believe now, as I 
have for several months, that we can truly sustain the Uni - 



versity 


only 


if our 


appropriations

budget

costs . 

What would further reductions mean? My estimate, founded 
on campus analyses, is based on a possible 5 percent cut from 
the original Executive budget, or another $6 million. The 
consequences of any reduction, more or less, can be assessed 
from this base. 

Altogether, we could be faced with a wide range of choices, 
The consequences set forth below are the most likely. They as- 
sume a limited cutback of full programs and functions in order 
to maintain basic institutional strengths in others, with varia- 
tions from campus to campus in the nature of the cuts. I am 
skeptical whether overall we can achieve, in a single fiscal 
year, the necessary savings through basic program adjustments. 
We will, therefore, have to chip away throughout the University 
with a resultant general weakening of the institution. The 
consequences also assume that we have minimal capacity to off- 
set losses in state revenue through new sources of income, 
especially given current federal budgetary trends. When the 
final fiscal picture is clear, the Board will need to decide 
which choices are required. 






\ 



Statement by President Knapp to the Board of Trustees 
May 13, 1981 
Page Four 

I project five specific consequences from appropriations 
5 percent less than the Governor's original budget: 

(1) We would need to reduce state-supported employment 
in the University by at least 8 percent — which translates in- 
to the loss of at least 400 currently filled full and part- 
time, academic and non-academic positions. I would like to 
be able to assert that we could achieve the reduction through 
attrition. I cannot. If the rumored cuts go through, some 
people now employed-- from clerks and maintenance workers to 
administrators and f aculty--will not have jobs next year. 

The staffing problem differs from campus to campus, but it is 
potentially serious for all. 

(2) We would have to reduce substantially our level of 
commitment to help the state through education and research 
for economic development, especially in high technology . Many 
vacancies in all fields, including ones in engineering, manage- 
ment, the natural sciences, mathematics, agriculture, marine 
science, and computer science, would perforce stay vacant— and 
we would be severely restricted in our ability to continue re- 
allocating resources to high demand, high need fields of study. 
The vacancy situation would be made worse in the same fields by 
lack of money for the state-of-the-art equipment upon which 
they depend for state-of-the-art education. 

(3) We would need to pull back throughout the University 
from recent efforts to improve management through new systems 
as well as efforts to step up private and corporate giving . 



f 



t 



Statement by President Knapp to the Board of Trustees 
May 13, 1981 
Page Five 

While both are essential for the University's long-range future, 
I cannot in good conscience say that in the short-run they should 
take precedence in staffing over that needed for the education of 
current students. 

(4 ) We would suffer losses at Amherst and Boston in a wide 
range of services which make the difference between a university 
which is decent and reputable--and one that is marginal --for 
example, tutorial and other learning services for students who 
are intelligent and motivated, but poorly prepared; quality 
maintenance of the buildings in which teaching and learning take 
place; and, library purchases which already fall below levels 
required for a university of our scope and reputation. 

(5) Unless specific provision is made for $1 million in 
additional funding for the Medical Center, our long-standing 
commitment in family medicine will be seriously, if not fatally , 
jeopardized . 

All told, if such reductions should take place in the next 
fiscal year, the University would run a risk put to me recently 
by a member of the General Court--that of dropping from a pace 
behind the nation's leading state universities to the fifth 
rank. We are preparing for a different University as we move 
into the latter years of this decade, but we cannot make changes 
sensibly or reasonably in the space of two or three months . The 
University leadership recognizes that we must manage our re- 
sources with prudence and creativity. But another fiscal shock 
like that the University sustained six years ago could harm

irreparably those who depend on the public sector for a univer- 
sity-level education. 

Only two months ago this Board affirmed emphatically its 
commitment to a University system and administration designed 
to pursue both access and quality for the people of the Common- 
wealth. I must report to you that the proposals rumored to be 
under consideration could jeopardize both the system and the 
goals to which the Board is committed . 

Closing down, next year, something like 300 courses and 
sections in the University will be as dramatic to our students 
as the closing out of precinct and fire stations and public 
schools has been to the neighborhoods of cities and towns 
throughout the state. Our problems will not receive the same 
attention in the media as those of the cities and towns. But, 
in the next year, and the next and the next, the people of the 
Commonwealth, both as a whole and in each of the 333 cities and 
towns from which our 33,000 students come, will experience from 
that action a cumulative, negative impact from which they will 
not soon recover. 

I believe that few in the Commonwealth or the General 
Court, would intentionally cripple or endanger the future of 
the University as a state-wide academic institution. For many 
years, the General Court and its leadership have helped to 
build and support the University. Unfortunately, decisions to 
offset one kind of crisis in the short-run, more often than 
not, produce crises of a different order in the long-run. As

I have asserted more than once, Massachusetts 1 greatest natural 
resource is its people. Only through education and training of 
the highest order can the state fully capitalize on its great- 
est asset and, thereby, ensure its long-run strength. I, like 
all in the University community, recognize the seriousness of 
the Commonwealth's fiscal crisis. But, a potential $17 million 
Proposition 2-1/2 charge to the University, its students and 
parents would be excessive--$5 million in new tuition revenues; 
close to $7 million in inflation absorption; and, from $2 to $6 
million in basic cuts. I see no way in which any reasonable 
person could defend such a plan of action. The state's economy-- 
and its fiscal viability — flow now and in the future from trained 
manpower. We cannot jeopardize the future for the present.

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 2:00 p.m. Presen- 
tations on University Personnel Management and the Internal Audit- 
ing Operation were made to the Committee. A general overview of 
the activities in these areas was given, as well as a summary of 
related major issues facing the University at this time. 

Mr. Manigault noted in his presentation that the lack of 
current and comprehensive codified policies for the University pre- 
sented problems for both internal and external audits. Considerable 
discussion ensued, and it was generally agreed that this situation, 
particularly in regard to the management of trust funds, required 
immediate attention. It was also suggested that thought should be 
given to areas where government regulation and requirements for fed- 
eral audit activities seemed excessive in light of the current fed- 
eral administration's interest in deregulation. 

Mr. Manigault 's presentation on Internal Audits led into the Revision to 
meeting's action items. He provided the background on the Revisions the Audit 
to the Audit Protocols , (Doc. T80-019) which were first adopted by Protocols 
the Board on April 2, 1980. At that time, the Board had a standing (Doc. T81-046) 
Committee on Audits. That Committee's responsibilities were assigned 
to the Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs by the By-Laws 
adopted on February 4, 1981 for the newly-constituted Board whose 
smaller membership made it unrealistic to maintain a larger commit- 
tee structure. The proposed modifications to the Audit Protocols do 
not essentially alter the structure of the earlier protocols, but 
they delegate certain functions formerly assigned to the Trustee

committee to the President and in some cases to the Director of 
Auditing. The Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs would re- 
tain the following responsibilities in the new protocols: (1) ap- 
proval of the annual audit plan; (2) receipt of quarterly reports 
on internal and external audits from the Director of Auditing; 
(3) receipt of an annual report from the President on the use of 
minority and women-owned firms for external audits; and (4) re- 
ceipt of an annual report from the President. It was then moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the re- 
vised Audit Protocols contained in Doc. T81- 
046.

Mr. Manigault then presented the Annual Audit Plan for FY82 . 
He explained how the areas to be audited were selected and how it 
was determined which audits should be done internally and which ex- 
ternally. The Audit Plan will be reevaluated in six months, and, 
if significant changes are required, an updated version will be 
submitted for approval in December. 

Ms. McDemmond introduced the Facilities Management and Gen- 
eral Services Trust Fund — UM/Amherst. She explained that person- 
nel from physical plant work on non-state owned buildings (i.e., 
dormitories). Through the mechanism of the Facilities Management 
Trust Fund the physical plant department is reimbursed for labor 
costs incurred in this repair work. Similarly, the General Services 
Trust Fund serves as a mechanism to reimburse state accounts for 
utilities and materials. 

The FY81 Facilities Management and General Services Trust 
Funds for FY81 have never been approved largely because there was 
difficulty in reaching agreement on the campus on the amount of 
money to be charged within the Facilities Planning Trust Fund. 

Ms. McDemmond was asked to work with physical plant and hous- 
ing operations to work out an equitable and agreeable arrangement. 
Several other negotiated service agreements with other campus trust 
fund entities are being developed, and the budget for those trust 
funds will be reviewed later to reflect the new agreements. 

The late submission of the FY81 budget causeed some concern 
but the Committee was assured that the previous trustee budget com- 
mittee had been fully apprised of this situation. The motion was 
made, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY81 and 
FY82 Facilities Planning and Operations Personnel 
Trust Fund Budgets. (Doc. T81-048A) 

Mr. Stine introduced the next agenda item, the Establishment 
of the Allied Health Trust Fund — UM/Worcester. The University

Hospital's resources have been used for allied health programs for 
students enrolled in other schools and universities. Previously, 
support for these programs was part of the direct state appropri- 
ation to the Hospital. As the Hospital is moving toward self- 
sufficiency and resources for this type of outreach program become 
more restricted, this trust fund will provide a mechanism whereby 
these programs can be funded and the Medical Center can be reim- 
bursed. Currently only two contracts have been agreed upon and 
the budget as presented reflects just those two; others will be 
developed with participating institutions. 

After several questions, it was moved, seconded and

The Committee then reviewed the proposal for the Entrance

able to provide additional information when requested.

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 11:30 a.m. The first 
three items on the agenda concerned requests for waivers from the 
trustee policy on sabbatical and professional improvement leaves. 
The first request was for a Leave of Absence for Gerald Sullivan — 
UM/Boston. Dr. Sullivan spend the last year on a professional im- 
provement leave; the leave of absence without pay is required to 
allow him to continue his research on student life at other univer- 
sities so he may complete a book on this research. Dean Sullivan 
has signed a statement acknowledging his obligation to return to 
his duties the following year. 

Dr. Richard Freeland — UM/Boston has also requested a waiver 
from the requirement that he return immediately upon completion of 
his sabbatical. Dr. Freeland is engaged in writing a history of 
universities in Boston from 1910 to 1975; the added year's leave 
of absence will permit him to complete this work. 

The Exemption for Christopher Robles from the Trustee Policy 
on Professional Improvement Leave — UM/Boston is required because 
during Mr. Robles' s leave of absence the Office of Student and Aca- 
demic Support Services underwent significant reorganization and his 
former position was elminated. There is currently no comparable 
position open which effectively utilizes Mr. Roble's talents. The 
Chancellor recommended that, given the change in circumstances, it 
would be in the mutual interest of the University and Mr. Robles, 
if he were exempted from the requirement that he return the salary 
received during his leave in 1979 and not return to the University.

These three requests prompted considerable discussion about 
the Trustee approved sabbatical leave and professional leave poli- 
cies. Trustee Robsham stated that he did not feel it was appropri- 
ate to grant special exemptions to Trustee policy and indicated that 
the individual's obligation to return to the University should be 
honored in all cases. 



r 



It was explained that since the University had the obliga- 
tion to encourage and foster research and public service activities, 
the leave policies have built-in mechanisms for individual waiver 
requests to permit individuals, in exceptional cases, to complete 
work begun during the sabbatical year which would ultimately enrich 
and benefit the University. It was noted that these requests were 
indeed infrequent — only two or three out of some forty sabbaticals 
undertaken each year on the Boston campus. 

After the justification for each case was discussed in de- 
tail, it was

him a year's leave without pay, all under the 
conditions set forth in Doc. T81-054;

The Appointment of Dr. Jesse McDade as Associate Professor 
of Black Studies with Tenure — UM/Boston was considered. This 
appointment represents the culmination of a long, nation-wide 
search for the first full-time Chairman of the Black Studies Depart- 
ment. There was no discussion, and it was

The Committee then reviewed the Appointment of Dr. Ronald 
Scrudato as Associate Professor of Environmental Studies with Ten- 
ure — UM/ Boston. Dr. Scrudato will assume the directorship of the 
Environmental Science Center and his appointment was enthusiasti- 
cally recommended by those directly involved in the Environmental 
Science program, as well as Dean Riccards and Chancellor Corrigan.

The Chairman convened the meeting at 2:15 p.m. and asked 
for consideration of the minutes of the meeting of the Board on 
May 13, 1981. There were no corrections or additions to the min- 
utes as circulated, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : To approve the minutes of the May 13, 1981 
Board meeting. 

In his report, the Chairman made several brief comments but 
noted in particular that the House had been extremely considerate 
of the University with regard to the FY82 budget given the con- 
straints within which it made its determinations. 

As part of his report, the President asked Glen Stine to 
review for the Board the status of the budget process. Mr. Stine 
outlined the dates which are critical in the budget process as 
the new fiscal year approaches and reviewed the levels of funding 
which have been recommended at various legislative stages. 

At the President's request, Ms. Veith explained the pro- 
cesses underway to deliver salary increases due to University em- 
ployees. No category of employee has received a salary increase 
this year despite authorizing votes of the Board and signed (and 
approved) collective bargaining agreements. Ms. Veith expressed 
the University Administration's increasing concern whether the 
approval and funding processes through the executive and legisla- 
tive branches will be concluded on a time schedule and in a man- 
ner to allow the University to actually pay the increases.

The Board discussed this issue at some length, noting their 
frustration with the prolonged process. It was suggested that 
Board action might help to expedite this matter and it was decided 
that a formal motion would be considered later in the meeting. 

Following the reports of the Chancellors to the Board, 
there was considerable discussion about several issues identified 
by Chancellor Corrigan in his review of the situation regarding 
the Boston area reorganization. Chancellor Corrigan had explained 
that Chancellor Duff's involvement in the process had shifted the 
focus of the reorganization and introduced some new components, in- 
cluding a proposal for the appointment of a 15-member Implementa- 
tion Board. There was general agreement that members of the Board 
of Regents should be individually approached and before formal 
action is taken, made aware of the implications of the establish- 
ment of any such body. 

Trustee Troy then gave the report of the Committee on Aca- 
demic and Student Affairs, which met earlier in the day. The 
first two items for consideration were requests for approval of 
Leave of Absence for Gerald Sullivan — UM/Boston and Waiver of Re- 
quirement of the Sabbatical Leave Policy for Richard Freeland — 
UM/Boston. Trustee Robsham said he did not support the approval 
of such special exemptions to trustee policy since the individual's 
obligation to return to the University under the conditions agreed 
upon at the commencement of the sabbatical should be honored. Mr. 
Greene explained that in both instances the individuals are in- 
volved in research efforts which would enrich the institution. 
Motions were made and seconded, and it was 



VOTED : 



and further, 
VOTED : 



To waive the requirement that Assistant Dean 
Gerald J. Sullivan return immediately to the 
University on completion of his sabbatical 
leave, and to grant him a year's leave with-

in Doc. T81-054; 



To waive the requirement that Dr. Freeland

Trustee Robsham voted against both motions. 

Trustee Troy reported that Trustee Robsham also did not 
vote for the request for Exemption for Christopher Robles from 
the Trustee Policy on Professional Improvement Leave — UM/Boston 
for the same reasons as stated above. However, it was explained 
that during Mr. Roble's leave of absence, the Office of Student 
Academic Support Services underwent significant reorganization 
and his former position was eliminated. There is no comparable

The Appointment of Dr. Jesse McDade as Associate Professor

In the absence of Trustee Knowles, Trustee Baldwin then 
presented the report of the Committee on Budget and Financial Af- 
fairs. Trustee Baldwin listed the responsibilities retained by 
the Budget and Financial Affairs in the proposed Revisions to the 
Audit Protocols and recommended Board approval of the document. 
Motion was made, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the revised Audit Protocols contained 
in Doc. T81-046. 

The Committee reviewed the Facilities Management and Gen- 
eral Services Trust Fund Budgets for FY81 and FY82 and recommended 
Board approval. Trustee Costin noted that the FY81 budget for 
these trust funds was approved reluctantly since it did not fall 
under the jurisdiction of the current Committee. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the FY81 and FY82 Facilities 
Planning and Operations Personnel Trust 
Fund Budgets. (Doc. T81-048) 

The establishment of the Allied Health Trust Fund — UM/ 
Worcester was recommended by the Committee. Motion was made, sec- 
onded and without discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To establish the University of Massachusetts/ 

Worcester Allied Health Trust Fund, which shall 
have as its purpose the providing of services 
in non-physician health science programs in 
collaboration with other institutions of higher 
learning within the Commonwealth as outlined in 
Doc. T81-049. 

The costs of the operation and maintenance of 
this self-supporting program shall be recovered 
from fees charged to users of the program and 
any other appropriate non-state funding sources. 

Further, to defer approval of the budget for 
said trust fund, pending further clarification 
of funding sources. 

Trustee Baldwin reported that the Committee reviewed and 
recommended positive action on the Fee-Based Trust Funds — UM/ 
Worcester. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the FY82 Fee-Based Trust Fund Bud- 
gets at UM/Worcester. (Doc. T8 1-050) 

There was some questions about the proposed Entrance Sign 
for the Harbor Campus and general concern was expressed about the 
cost of its construction. Mr. Costin requested that the proposed 
motion to approve the sign be tabled and be referred back to the 
Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs for further consideration,

BOARD 
6/10/81 



In order to permit the University to operate between the 

time the state appropriation is passed and when the Board takes 

formal action to approve the University budget for FY82, a Con- n . . 

r , Continuing 

tinuing Resolution is necessary. Without discussion and on mo- „ n . . 
s J Resolution 

tion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; That the President be authorized to approve 
and adopt the policies and procedures gov- 
erning the expenditure of state and non-state 
funds by the three campuses, the University 
Administration and the Institute for Govern- 
mental Services from July 1, 1981 until such 
time as the Board of Trustees adopts the Op- 
erating Budget for Fiscal Year 1982. The 
approval of expenditure of said funds shall 
be consistent with the applicable state 
statutes governing the FY82 appropriation 
and in accordance with Trustee policy. 

At the conclusion of Trustee Baldwin's report Trustee 
Tower proposed a resolution addressing the Board concern discussed 
earlier about the inordinate delay in granting the approved salary 
increases to University employees. 

Upon motion made and seconded, and without discussion it was 

RESOLVED: The failure to grant pay increases over the past 
year to University employees is of great concern 
to the Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts. This concern is further height- 
ened by the fact that we are in a period of 
high inflation; salaries granted at other uni- 
versities throughout the country make it diffi- 
cult for this University to attract and retain 
qualified faculty, administrators and staff. 
If we are to exercise our responsibilities as 
Trustees, it is crucial that the state govern- 
ment be more responsive to the fiscal needs of 
the University and recognize the importance of 
granting adequate pay increases on a reasonable 
and timely basis. 

Therefore, the Board of Trustees strongly urges 
the Board of Regents to communicate the seri- 
ousness of this situation to the Governor and 
the State Legislature and to request that the 
following legislation be passed: 

Senate 2227 covering non-unit professional 
and classified staff and the faculty/librarian 
contract at the University of Massachusetts 
with the MSP/FSU/MTA/NEA.

MINUTES OF A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

June 25, 1981; 2:00 p.m. 
Thirteenth Floor Conference Room

Boston, Massachusetts 

ATTENDANCE: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Quinn; Trustees Baldwin, 

Caruso, Robsham and Troy; Ms. Hurd , Administrative Secretary

Counsel 

UM/ Amherst : Chancellor Koffler; Professor Demerath, Faculty Rep-

UM/Boston : Chancellor Corrigan 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Tranquada 

Chairman Quinn convened the meeting at 2:00 p.m. Of imme- Reorganization 
diate concern to the Board was the Reorganization of Public Higher of Public 
Education in the Boston area and particularly the implications of Higher 
the report by Chancellor Duff to the Boston Task Force of the Board Education 
of Regents. Chairman Quinn referred to his June 22 statement on 
the "Duff Report" (the statement is appended to these minutes) and 
described his conversation with Chancellor Duff prior to the re- 
port's release. 

He expressed his concern about the establishment of an "im- 
plementation board" and the ambiguity about is purposes, particu- 
larly the question of who has legal authority for the operation of 
the University at Boston should such a mechanism be created. He 
also referred to several floor amendments to the Senate budget 
which seemed to indicate that the Board of Regents was seeking to 
clarify its authority with regard to creating the institutions, an 
authority which was not expressly stated in the original reorgani- 
zation legislation. 

These issues were discussed at some length, and general 
agreement emerged with the Chairman's position that the proposed 
implementation board seriously impinged upon the Board of Trustees' 
legal authority over the institution. It was further agreed that 
he should make a statement stating the Trustees' disagreement with 
this approach at the meeting of the Board of Regents on Friday, 
June 26. 



'I 



In discussion, Trustee B.obsham expressed his disagreement 
with this position stating his belief that the establishment of an 
implementation board was inevitable, and that the University would 
be better served by cooperating in this process from the outset. 
He stated that he would not support any statement opposing the Duff

Statement by Robert H. Quinn, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the 

University of Massachusetts 

I am deeply distressed by both the content of Chancellor 
Duff's report and the manner in which the report has been released 
to the University and to its Board of Trustees. Clearly, the Board 
of Trustees and the University have not been given adequate time or 
opportunity to respond in an effective manner. The document, in 
essence, suggests illegal actions and is irresponsible in its 
attempt to abrogate the legislatively-mandated powers of the Univer- 
sity's Board of Trustees. In addition, I wish to put on record my 
personal distaste that the first public act of the newly appointed 
Chancellor of Higher Education is to suggest that the foremost in- 
stitution of higher learning in the Commonwealth be dismantled — 
and be dismantled in so callous a manner. The procedure and the 
suggestions appear preconceived to destroy public higher education 
of quality in Massachusetts — leaving only the name of the Univer- 
sity where quality has stood. 



I 






Let me be specific. Chancellor Duff and I met at his request 
less than one week ago, at which time I expressed my strong opposi- 
tion to any attempt to dismantle the University of Massachusetts and 
to any abrogation of the powers of its Board. I stressed the true 
and continuing commitment of the new Board to the urban mission of 
the Boston Campus and to its responsible and responsive development. 
Chancellor Duff at that time asked me to relay his views to the 
Board members, which would only be legally appropriate in a meeting 
held under the Commonwealth's open-meeting law. The short time of 
less than one week prohibited this. However, I have no doubt that 
Chancellor Duff was fully aware of my position and fully aware of 
the need to rethink his obviously unlawful proposals. I suspect 
our meeting was only his attempt to put the Trustees in the center 
ring of the proverbial dog-and-pony show. 

The Regents' staff released Chancellor Duff's recommendations 
only yesterday in mid-af ternoon, a derisive action which disregards 
any process of informed discussion. Is one-half day a proper time

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 
COMMITTEE ON BUDGET AND FINANCIAL AFFAIRS 

August 4, 1981; 2:00 p.m.

Boston, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chairman Knowles ; Trustee Costin; 
Ms. Hurd, Administrative Secretary

Mr. Page, Director, Financial Affairs 

UM/Boston : Chancellor Corrigan 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Tranquada 

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 2:05 p.m. At the 
President's request, Mr. Stine reviewed the Budget Guidelines for 
FY82 and FY83 . There is some question on how much the Board of 
Regents must follow the state budget guidelines in developing in- 
structions for the institutions and there is strong indication 
that these questions will delay the budget process for FY83. Mr. 
Stine explained that the University's process for FY82 operating 
budget is proceeding along the lines of previous years, except that 
UM/Boston had not yet received it's allocation broken out from the 
Boston area "cluster" budget as appropriated by the Legislature. 
He indicated he hoped to be able to continue the development of and 
justification for the budget around the major programmatic objec- 
tives . 



Budget Guide- 
lines for 
FY82 and FY83 



As an information item and as a background against which the 
Committee could review the proposed Grant and Contract Guidelines , 
Mr. Page reviewed grant activities on each of the campuses and at 
the University as a whole. He outlined the management and account- 
ing systems which support the grant activity and referred to the 
recovery of indirect costs to the institution which are built into 
the grants and provide a significant source of funds for the Uni- 
versity. 

President Knapp explained that the University has been op- 
erating under Grant and Contract Guidelines which were approved by 
the Board in 1975. Significant changes in federal regulations as 
well as increases in the level of sponsored research activity 
prompted a review and revision of the guidelines, which was under- 
taken two years ago. The proposed guidelines were developed by a

task force group with representatives from each of the campuses and 
the University Administration. They have been reviewed at all ap- 
propriate governance levels. 

There was some discussion about the need for legal review of 
grants and contracts, and it was agreed that it was important that 
legal counsel review new contracts and all those which deviate in 
any way from standard and previously approved contract formats. 
President Knapp suggested that a supplemental set of instructions 
be issued outlining conditions under which legal review must take 
place, and it was agreed that this would be acceptable. 

In response to a request for clarification from Mr. Brand, 
President Knapp judged that the guidelines covered gifts restricted 
to a specific purpose for expenditure in a fiscal year and not part 
of a restricted endowment. 



i 



It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the policy 
guidelines for the development and administra- 
tion of grants, contracts and restricted gifts 
set forth in Doc. T81-051, with the understand- 
ing that the functions assigned to the Vice 
President for Management be discharged by the 
University Controller and the functions assigned 
to the Vice President for Academic Affairs be 
discharged by the Associate Vice President for 
Academic Affairs 



Resolut 
Interna 
Audit 
81-1 



ion of 
1 



Mr. Manigault reported on the Resolution of Internal Audit 
81-1 which involves the reconciliation of a number of trust fund 
cash balances with their budget balances. Of particular concern 
was the amount of funds available in the trust fund reserve. Mr. 
Manigault indicated it was determined that there were suffi- 
cient funds to cover all budget balances. As a follow-up to the 
audit, he had also recommended that the University Comptroller re- 
view all the accounts in question and identify the actual balances. 
Mr. Page presented his findings to the Committee noting that most 
of the difficulties had been bookkeeping problems complicated by 
the changeover in the accounting systems. 



UM/ Amherst — 
The Bus 
System Fee 
(Doc. T81- 
063) 



The Committee then reviewed for action new fees and trust 
funds. The Bus System Fee — UM/Amherst has been made necessary by 
the decrease in grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation 
which subsidize the bus system. Ms. Reid explained that ways to 
cope with the reduction in support while maintaining the current 
level of service have been discussed with the student government 
associations. An increase in the graduate student activities fee 
was built in to cover the cost of the added transportation costs, 
but since a previous Board vote prohibits any increase in the under- 
graduate student activities fee until FY83, the undergraduate lead- 
ership recommends the establishment of a new fee. The University

Administration supports this recommendation with the understanding 
this is an interim arrangement and that the campus will develop a 
proposal for a long-term funding of the bus system during the up- 
coming academic year. 

The Faculty Parking Trust Fund — UM/Worcester is proposed in UM/Worcester — 
order to establish a fee for the use of a gated parking lot by doc- Faculty Park- 
tors and other faculty members. This also marks the beginning of ing Trust Fund 
the process of moving to a fee-based parking system which will be (Doc. T81-

The X-Ray Analytical Facility Trust Fund — UM/Amherst will 
handle a specific service which the campus departments of geology 
and geography provide to a broad audience and is necessary to main- 
tain the support for the activity which was previously provided by 
an NSF grant.

that there shall be no charge for instruc-

Chairman Knowles then called for consideration of the Pro- 
posal for the Allocation of Trust Fund Interest . President Knapp 
provided some background on the growth of trust fund interest and 
outlined the purposes for which it had been used in the past year. 
He then presented his recommendations for FY83 as described in 
Doc. T81-062. In reviewing the recommendations, Chairman Knowles 
suggested that the allocation for operation of the University Sy- 
stem be separated from the rest of the items and considered by the 
full Board at the special meeting on August 5th. It was also 
agreed that Item 5 on Page 2 of Doc. T81-062 was more appropriately 
described as a "Personnel Adjustment Fund" and that editorial 
change was made to the document . 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY82 
Trust Fund Interest Allocations contained in 
Doc. T81-062A. 



FY 32 Budget 
for Common 
Services 
(Doc. T81- 
064) 



The FY82 Budget for Common Services supports the Administra- 
tive Data Processing Center, the University Controller, the Internal 
Audit Department, the University Treasurer and the Human Resources 
System. President Knapp noted that there had been some discussion 
in the Executive Council with the Chancellors about the proposed 
level of funding of Common Services. However, he indicated he sup- 
ported the approval of the recommended budget in Doc. T81-064 , but 
suggested that if further discussions with the Chancellors indicated 
changes in the budget for common services were appropriate, they 
could be reflected in the Operating Budget. 

Without further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
FY82 Common Services Budget contained in 
Doc. T81-064. 

President Knapp and Chancellor Tranquada provided background 
information on the proposed Overscale Salaries for Clinical Depart- 
ment Chairmen — UM/Worcester. Granting overscale salaries to the 
clinical department chairmen would bring their state salary portion 
to the same level as other department chairmen. After some discus- 
sion, it was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish a salary 
range of $52,000 to $62,000 for chairmen of 
clinical and basic science departments at UM/ 
Worcester, and to approve the salary increases 
and the personnel actions for the department

chairmen set forth in Doc. T81-070; further, 
to authorize the Chancellor to conduct an 
annual review of such salaries and to make 
recommendations to the Board with regard 
thereto. 

The Committee had received a memorandum dated August 4, 
1981 entitled "Proposal for the Cooperative Venture between the 
New England School of Law and University of Massachusetts" from 
the Dean of the New England School of Law. It was suggested 
that this memo be referred to the Boston campus and the Univer- 
sity Administration for review and recommended action. 

There was no further business and the meeting was ad-

Chairman Quinn convened the special meeting at 2:10 p.m. 
Before beginning the business agenda, Chairman Quinn explained 
that Mr. Myles Cavanagh had requested to make a statement to the 
Board regarding the appointment of the Associate Provost for Under- 
graduate Education at UM/Amherst and that he had been granted the 
request. Mr. Cavanagh had been invited to appear before the 
Board at this meeting. After Mr. Cavanagh finished addressing 
the Board, the Chairman asked President Knapp to bring the Board 
up-to-date on the status of the FY82 budget for the University. Status of 



FY82 Budget 



The President reported that the final appropriation for 
FY82 provides $99 million for UM/Amherst; $17 million for UM/ 
Worcester; and a $44 million budget for a "cluster" of schools in 
the Boston area including UM/Boston, Boston State College, Bunker 
Hill Community College and Roxbury Community College. It left to 
the Board of Regents how the $44 million should be allocated among 
the schools in the "Boston Cluster," and Chancellor Corrigan has 
been involved in negotiations during the last week regarding the 
distribution to UM/Boston. The state budget provided no funding 
for the Office of the President and no restrictive language was 
included. In the second deficiency budget, however, an amendment 
was offered on the floor of the Senate by Senator Olver of Amherst, 
which abolished both the position and office of the President. 

This amendment was included in the final conference com- 
mittee report which was passed last Friday and is now before the 
Governor awaiting his action. The President also reported that the 
Governor's Council acted favorably on the warrant which includes 
the funding for the FY81 faculty contract; the checks covering the 



Special 

Board

retroactive pay increases for the faculty will be sent out this 
week. 



Operation 
of the Uni- 
versity 
System 



Trustee Knowles reported that among the items considered at 
the meeting of the Budget and Financial Affairs Committee on August 
4th, was the allocation of Trust Fund Interest for the Operation of 
the University System , and particularly the University Administra- 
tion. The $1,080,000 recommended by the Committee includes funding 
for the pay increases for existing staff, the modest addition of 
two or three positions to the office, as well as funding for the 
University's special activities account and the Trustee operations. 

After a motion was made and seconded to approve the alloca- 
tion, there was general discussion of the authority of the Board 
under existing law to allocate funds for this purpose and the ef- 
fects that the pending legislation might have on the Board's deci- 
sion. Professor Demerath noted that he felt obligation to bring 
to the Board's attention some sentiment existing on the Amherst 
campus in opposition to the use of interest generated by trust 
funds largely originating on the Amherst campus for the President's 
office and cautioned the Trustees to consider the reaction that 
this action might create not only in Amherst but also in the Gen- 
eral Court. The Board, however reiterated their position that a 
central university administration, adequately staffed and funded, 
is essential to the smooth and coordinated operation of a strong 
statewide university system. Further, they agreed that should 
the Governor not veto the section affecting the President's office, 
alternative organizational structures will have to be considered 
in order to maintain the system and provide executive support for 
the Board allowing it to carry out its statutory responsibilities. 

It was then moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To approve the FY82 Trust Fund Interest Alloca- 
tions for the Operation of the University System 
as detailed in Section II, Paragraph 2 of Doc. 
T81-062. 



Trustee Rep- 
resentation 
on the Im- 
plementation 
Board for 
Boston Area 
Reorganiza- 
tion 



The Chairman turned to the question of Trustee Representa- 
tion on the Implementation Board for Boston Area Reorganization . 
After some discussion about the timetable under which the reorgani- 
zation may take place as well as major issues currently under dis- 
cussion by Chancellor Duff, Chancellor Corrigan, and President 
McCarthy of Boston State College, it was agreed that the designa- 
tion of four Trustees for appointment to the Implementation Board 
would be deferred. It was noted that as these discussions proceed, 
several critical policy issues, particularly those involving major 
programmatic changes and faculty appointments, will require Board 
consideration .

The Boston and Massachusetts Bay-Framingham "Clusters" 

The dramatic budgetary developments for FY 1982 have created 
a crisis of unprecedented proportions in higher education in the 
Commonwealth. The total allocation of $330 million will result in 
severe fiscal constraints at all thirty campuses in the public sys- 
tem. Through the "cluster concept," a unique budgetary device, six 
public higher institutions stand in jeopardy. Instead of allocat- 
ing the traditional line item appropriation for these campuses, the 
legislature appropriated a lump sum of $10.8 million for Massachu- 
setts Bay Community College and Framingham State College. This fig- 
ure has created a fiscal shortfall of approximately $1.2 million. 
The legislature also clustered the University of Massachusetts- 
Boston, Boston State College, Roxbury Community College and Bunker 
Hill Community College in a single appropriation of $44 million. 
This appropriation represents a shortfall of $6 million. The ap- 
propriations for these two clusters is the reason for this emergency 
meeting. I wish to explain both situations in detail so that you 
might better appreciate the draconian measures which will be neces- 
sary to stay within these appropriations. 

Boston Cluster 

On June 26, 1981, the Board of Regents adopted my recommenda- 
tions for the reorganization of public higher education in Boston. 
This plan called for the consolidation of Boston State College with 
the University of Massachusetts-Boston over a three-year period. As 
part of this plan, an Implementation Board was to be established 
September 1 to oversee this consolidation. Effective January 1, 
1982, the Board of Trustees of Boston State College was to be dis- 
continued. The three-year timetable presented difficulties, but I 
believed that since the subject of reorganization had been discussed 
over a long period of time, that the timetable was reasonable. 

All of you are familiar with the budget crisis which occurred 
during the month of July. In the third week of July, the legisla- 
ture completed the budget and Governor King signed it into law. 
Given the magnitude of the shortfall in Boston, I decided initially 



\ 



\ 



\ 



-2- 

to exclude the two community colleges from sharing in the cuts be- 
cause the legislature clearly intended to close Boston State Col- 
lege as rapidly as possible. Furthermore, the Boston Plan adopted 
by the Regents acknowledges the necessity of expanding community 
college offerings in the City of Boston. This decision limits the 
fiscal crisis to Boston State College and the University of Massa- 
chusetts-Boston. I have been informed by the legislative leader- 
ship and by the executive that deficiency budgets will not be 
entertained this year unless mandated by court order. Given this 
reality, the $6 million shortfall can only be addressed by massive 
cuts at the two schools. 

The $6 million shortfall represents approximately half of 
the total annual operating budget of Boston State College. Obvi- 
ously this enormous deficit cannot be addressed merely by reducing 
the purchase of supplies, the deferral of maintenance, etc., since 
personnel costs represent approximately 85 percent of the appropri- 
ation for an average institution of higher education. The necessity 
to live within the appropriation can only be accomplished by sub- 
stantial reduction in personnel. 

If this funding deficiency is not resolved prior to the start 
of classes this fall, the cuts in programs, personnel, and students 
in January will be nothing short of catastrophic. 

After the Regents presented the Boston Plan in June, I asked 
President McCarthy of Boston State College and Chancellor Corrigan 
of the University of Massachusetts-Boston to present me with their 
suggestions for the development of the new University of Massachu- 
setts-Boston. Unfortunately, the fiscal crisis interrupted these 
initial steps to what I had hoped would be an orderly and reasoned 
approach to reorganization. Since the total dollars fell far short 
of meeting institutional appropriated needs, I recognized that we 
had to act immediately to resolve the crisis. Specifically, I 
established task forces composed of representatives of each of the 
affected institutions and a members of the Regents' staff who served 
as chair. These committees dealt with faculty, administrative per- 
sonnel, curriculum, physical facilities, student affairs, and 



-3- 



long-range planning, i.e., matters which must be addressed after 
September 1. 

Central to the whole process and approach is faculty and 
staff. The task force was composed of President McCarthy, Chan- 
cellor Corrigan, Roger Schinness of my staff, and an outside con- 
sultant. My charge to this committee was consistent with the 
guidelines of the Boston Task Force. In addition, I asked that 
all personnel decisions be based on three criteria: 

1. Qualifications and programmatic considerations; 

2. Affirmative action guidelines; and 

3. Union contracts. 

The committee met almost daily for a ten-day period. Under 
extremely trying circumstances, the members of the committee exhib- 
ited a rare degree of cooperation, sensitivity, and realism. Both 
presidents represented their respective institutions in a highly 
commendable fashion. The committee and I have agreed to the follow- 
ing basic recommendations wich are central to our solution to a 
crisis created by cluster budgeting. 

1. Those Boston State College faculty who hold the term- 
inal degree appropriate to the discipline (which is 
the normal University criteria for appointment) would 
be offered appointments in their current rank and 
salary to the University of Massachusetts-Boston fac- 
ulty, and further, would be recommended for tenure 
if they currently hold tenure at Boston State College. 

The remaining faculty at Boston State College would 
have their employment terminated effective August 29, 
1981. Of the 275 faculty currently at Boston State 
College, approximately 177 would be offered appoint- 
ment. Funding from the University of Massachusetts- 
Boston would be available for developmental leaves 
in the spring semester, 1982, for some Boston State 
College faculty offered appointment at the University 
of Massachusetts-Boston. 



-4- 



2. Those Boston State College faculty whose employment 
would be terminated would receive thirty days notice 
with pay and thereafter payment according to the 
severance provision of the State College Contract, 
which specifies one week of pay for each year of 
service, to a maximum of six months. Since the 
cluster budget does not include money for sever- 
ance pay, the estimated $1.8 million cost of 
severance would have to come from various non- 
appropriated sources. As an alternative funding 
source, a deficiency for this specific purpose 
could be requested from the legislature. A 
coordinated effort to place terminated Boston 
State College faculty and staff in other insti- 
tutions and agencies would be undertaken and coor- 
dinated by the Chancellor's Office. 

3. Two hundred and seventy-five part-time faculty 
at the University of Massachusetts-Boston and 
also at Boston State College would be terminated 
immediately. 

4. The nine professional librarians at Boston State 
College meet the University criteria for appoint- 
ment and would be offered positions at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts-Boston. 

5. All state funded classified staff at Boston State 
College would be retained, and the total number of 
classified staff would be reduced during the course 
of the year to a maximum of 476 through attrition. 
Since the average yearly attrition rate of classi- 
fied staff is approximately 20 percent, the 516 
current classified staff would be reduced to 475 
and even lower in a timely fashion. 



I

6. Consistent with their qualifications and experi- 
ence, 20 of the 35 non-faculty professional staff/ 
administrators at Boston State College would be 
offered professional staff positions at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts-Boston. Fifteen Boston 
State College administrators would be terminated 
with severance pay. 

7. In order to accomplish substantial reducations in 
the number of professional staff currently employed 
at the University of Massachusetts-Boston, Chancellor 
Corrigan would complete a review of his staffing 
needs by September 30, 1981. Shortly thereafter, 

20 University of Massachusetts-Boston professional 
staff /administrators would be terminated with sev- 
erance pay. 

It is estimated that these personnel recommendations could 
result in the two institutions staying within the approximately 
$38 million to be alloted to the cluster. Any further reductions 
required in the spring semester should be minimal. If large numbers 
of employees are not terminated immediately, there will be little, 
if any, monies left at the end of the fall semester to employ Boston 
State College personnel next semester. 

President McCarthy, Chancellor Corrigan and I recognize the 
anguish which these proposals entail. However, we remain convinced 
that this approach will employ the maximum number of individuals 
given the funding available, and at the same time it will allow us 
to continue to educate students at the affected institutions. 

Between now and the start of classes on September 14, an enor- 
mous number of academic and logistical problems must be resolved — 
rescheduling of courses, assignment of faculty, re-registration of 
students and allocation of classrooms to name a few. The Task Forces 



\ 



I 

mentioned previously are working on these among many other issues 
which must be dealt with if students are to be able to begin or 
continue their courses of studies in two weeks.

Massachusetts-Boston, Boston State College, Roxbury Community 
College and Bunker Hill Community College in a single appropriation 
of $44 million. This appropriation represents a shortfall of $6 
million. The appropriations for these two clusters is the reason 
for this emergency meeting. I wish to explain both situations in

which will be necessary to stay within these appropriations.

with the University of Massachusetts-Boston over a three-year

January 1, 19 82, the Board of Trustees of Boston State College 
was to be discontinued. The three-year timetable presented dif- 
ficulties, but I believed that since the subject of reorganization 
had been discussed over a long period of time, that the timetable 
was reasonable. 

All of you are familiar with the budget crisis which occurred

6. Consistent with their qualifications and experience, 

20 of the 35 non-faculty professional staff/administrators

first item discussed was FY82 Operating Budget — UM/Amherst, UM/ Budget 

Worcester, University Administration, Institute for Governmental (Doc. T81- 

Services. President Knapp noted that the operating budget for the 059) 
Boston campus was still uncertain, therefore the Committee would 
be asked to act on it at a later meeting. 

Mr. Stine then described the new format of the budget. All 
funds — state and non-state had been aggregated so that the major 
purposes, that is, instruction, research and public service, of 
the several components of the University, can be readily grasped. 

At both Amherst and Worcester, Mr. Stine continued, non- 
state funds substantially exceeded state funds. Also, the summary 
tables for the University as a whole, normally to be found in the 
budget document, were not included because of lack of information 
about the Boston budget. In the matter of student financial aid, 
while there had been substantial cuts in federal aid, the results 
will not be as devastating as had been expected. 

President Knapp said that the state appropriation, given 
inflation, represented less than level funding. The appropriation 
would lead to a loss of personnel and there would be a major dele- 
terious impact on equipment purchases and library acquisitions.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

In comparison with other state universities in New England, some 
of which are well below the FY81 figures, the University's budget 
looks relatively good. This situation will probably not continue 
in FY83, when the full impact of Proposition 2 1/2 will be appa- 
rent. 

The President explained that the $1,080,000 allocated to 
the University Administration budget concludes Board activities 
and costs of operating the University system. Provision is made 
for slightly larger staffing for the system and will allow a re- 
orientation of the operation. Ways have to be found to concen- 
trate on the intellectual vitality of the University rather than 
relations with the Board of Regents and simple survival. 

Trustee Costin said that in the next budget cycle the Uni- 
versity would be faced with the same fiscal problems and the same 
legislature. He pointed out that there will be criticism for 
spending money on administration rather than on education, even 
though no state funds are involved. President Knapp said he was 
aware of this problem. For this reason the increase in staff is 
being kept to a minimum and efforts are underway to improve com- 
munications with the legislature. 

Chancellor Koffler reviewed the Amherst budget. Inflation 
continues to take its toll and the campus is faced with a deficit 
of $2,700,000. This is not a new situation; however, in the past 
there was a choice of either increasing productivity, which the 
faculty has been doing for several years, or reducing services. 
In FY82 the campus would have to do both. 

The cuts in administrative/maintenance functions will be 
greater than those in academic areas where the intent will be to 
maintain programs in great demand and to reduce those in less de- 
mand. 

Chancellor Tranquada said the situation at Worcester re- 
sembles that at Amherst. This year for the first time the Hos- 
pital will receive no state funds and the state appropriation 
for the Medical School is $900,000 less than what is needed. 

In order to cope with this situation the Medical School has 
made all possible cuts in services and personnel. Future efforts 
to overcome the deficit will be in consolidating operations to 
increase efficiency; moving funds from well-established programs 
which generate revenue to new and essential programs; use of non- 
state funds wherever possible; and an increased effort to obtain 
private funds. Chancellor Tranquada concluded his remarks by 
noting that the Medical Center, despite many problems, intended 
to maintain its momentum in the drive towards excellency.

Chancellor Corrigan said that he was still awaiting formal 
notification of the FY82 budget for the Boston campus. However, 
he had been told that the total allocation would be $30,400,000. 
In a normal year this amount would constitute level funding; how- 
ever, because of the merger of Boston State College and UM/Boston 
the appropriation, though it was not readily apparent, represents 
a substantial reduction.

The Trustees then discussed the FY82 budget for the Insti- 
tute of Governmental Services. There was agreement that the bud- 
get, as well as a proposed transfer of funds within the budget, 
should be recommended to the Board for approval. 

It was then moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY82 
Operating Budget for UM/Amherst, the Medical 
School, the University Administration and the 
Institute for Governmental Services. (Doc. 
T81-059) 

The Committee then discussed Overscale Salaries for Non-Unit 
Professionals — UM/Amherst. The combination of the state's salary 
scale and the faculty bargaining unit had created an anomalous sit- 
uation on the Amherst campus. Members of the bargaining units are 
not subject to the state salary scale and can receive a salary 
above the state maximum. Chairmen of academic departments are not 
members of the unit and are subject to the maximum. In a number 
of cases these chairmen, simply by resigning their chairmanship, 
could receive substantial salary increases. The proposed vote 
was designed to eliminate this anomaly.

After a brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve over- 
scale salaries for those individuals listed 
in Doc. T81-068; further, to approve the 
personnel actions appended to said Document. 

The next agenda item was Academic Program Development Fund 
Requests . The three requests met the criteria of the purposes 
for which the fund was established — each involved more than one 
campus and each, given seed money, showed promise of becoming 
self supporting. 

The Center for Massachusetts Data will be the central source 
of data from the 1980 census. The Center of Aging will address the 
problems stemming from a population wherein the aging represent an 
inreasing proportion of the whole.

The Committee then discussed Worcester Medical Center Park- 
ing Proposal . In the course of the discussion it quickly became 
apparent that the parking situation at Worcester is rapidly becom- 
ing intolerable. It was the sense of the Trustees that the campus 
should continue developing recommendations for Board consideration, 

There was no further business to come before the Committee 
and the meeting adjourned at 11:47 p.m.

of the meeting of June 10th, June 25th and August 5th were con- 
sidered and on motion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the June 10 th, 
June 25th and August 5th Board meetings. 

The Chairman then referred briefly to the discussions with 
regard to the merger of Boston State College and the University 
at Boston, and outlined a chronology of those discussions over the 
last month. He reported that the faculty union of BSC had obtained 
a temporary restraining order which effectively forestalled the 
closing of BSC. However, he indicated that the President of the 
University and the UM/Boston Chancellor as well as Counsel and 
others had made every effort to cooperate with the Board of Regents 
and the BSC administrators in the reorganization effort while work- 
ing to maintain the integrity of the University and to insure that 
higher educational opportunity could continue for the young people 
of the greater Boston area. 

The Chairman also reported that he had received a copy of 
an audit performance report done by the State auditors on the man- 
agement of student activities trust funds on the State College cam- 
puses. That report contained some general recommendations for the 
Board of Regents with regard to the guidance and oversight of such 
trust funds. The University's Director of Auditing has been asked 
to review those recommendations and report to the Committee on Bud- 
get and Financial Affairs regarding any modifications which may be 
necessary in the University's handling of student activities trust 
funds.

Chancellor's 
Report 



Report of the 
Committee on 
Academic and 
Student 
Affairs 



President Knapp reported on several budget matters and 
noted in particular difficulties presented by the educational 
cluster budget in the Boston area; the appropriation of UM/Boston 
has not been formally allocated. He also noted that there were 
several gubernatorial vetoes on the regular budget and on the de- 
ficiency budget which relate to the University and they are await- 
ing legislative action. 

He reported that the establishment of ongoing relationships 
with the Board of Regents has also occupied considerable admini- 
strative time and attention. Although the Board of Regents has 
not issued the guidelines for the preparation of the FY83 budget, 
the internal review of the University's submission has begun. He 
further reported that the Commission on Telecommissions which is 
assessing the needs for a statewide telecommunications network for 
educational programming is preparing a formal report to the Trustees 
which will be presented to them in October or November. 

The President also referred to the rapidly changing situation 
revolving around the issue of Boston reorganization and stressed his 
primary concern about the critical need for substantial educational 
planning for the Boston campus to meet the program requirements of 
students. Similarly, he added that those faculty and staff, both 
from the University and from Boston State College, affected by the 
reorganization need to be able to plan for their professional fu- 
ture; the uncertainties resulting from the current situation cannot 
continue indefinitely without severely demoralizing these people. 

As part of the report from UM/Boston, Chancellor Corrigan 
provided a more detailed progress report on the discussions on the 
merger of UM/Boston and Boston State College. 

Chancellor Koffler reported that the enrollments this Sep- 
tember had increased over last year and most housing problems have 
been settled. The campus hosted several national summer programs 
and workshops which were very successful. 

Since Chancellor Tranquada had arranged a presentation on 
the Medical School during the luncheon preceding the meeting, he 
did not make a formal report to the Board. 

The Chairman then turned to the routine order of business 
and asked Trustee Troy to report for the Committee on Academic and 
Student Affairs which met earlier in the day. Trustee Troy reported 
that the Committee had reviewed the Award of Tenure to Joshua S. 
Singer — UM/Worcester and recommended positive action by the Board. 
On motion made and seconded, it was

Trustee Knowles made the report for the Committee on Budget 
and Financial Affairs which had met twice since the Board's last 
regular meeting. One section of the FY82 Trust Fund Interest Allo- 
cation had been approved by the Board in special session earlier, 
but the remaining allocations needed Board approval. After motion 
was made and seconded, there was some discussion on the allocations, 
particularly the purposes for the Personnel Adjustment Fund. The 
President noted that the programs to be supported by this fund have 
not been worked out and it is anticipated that specific allocations 
from this fund will be brought to the Board's attention. It was 
then moved, seconded and

Chairman Knowles reported that the Committee had conducted 
an extensive review of the FY82 Operating Budget at its meeting 
earlier in the day. Since the Board of Regents has not made an 
allocation for the Boston campus from the Boston cluster budget 
appropriated by the Legislature, approval is only recommended at 
this time for the Amherst campus, the Medical School and the Uni- 
versity Administration. It is expected that the Boston campus 
operating budget will be brought to the Board for approval at its 
next meeting. After a brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and

Three specific allocations from the Academic Program Develop-

made and seconded to approve them, President Knapp was asked to ex- 
plain the purposes of each. 

The Center for Massachusetts Data was established a year ago Center for 
in association with the Office of Community Affairs and provides Massachusetts 
for a central location for all census data for the Commonwealth. 
The Center is located on the Amherst campus, but uses faculty from 
the entire University. It provides an opportunity to serve state 
and local agencies throughout the state and offers oustanding re- 
search possibilities. The $75,000 covers the operating costs for 
one year; it is hoped that external funding will be attracted to 
support the Center in the future.

The Center on Aging was established by the Board last Feb-

wide Center. The allocation of $110,000 in seed money to the Cen- 
ter is made with the expectation that the Center will generate in 
the future external grants for both public service and research 
work related to the aged. 

The Telecommunications Commission is to be funded from the

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 12:07 p.m. The 
first item on the agenda was FY83 Maintenance Budget Request . 
The budget request had been structured to conform to a formula 
established by the Board of Regents. Under the formula the cost 
of operating the physical plant is separated from all other costs 
and provision is made for inflation, salary increases and pro- 
jected enrollment changes. 

President Knapp and the Chancellors each described the meas- 
ures taken on their campuses to enable the institution to function 
in a time of severe fiscal constraint and increasingly burdensome 
inflation. After a thorough discussion of the matter, it was moved, 
seconded and

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY83 
Maintenance Budget Requests of the University 
set forth in Doc. T81-060, for submission to 
the Board of Regents, subject to further re- 
view and refinement by the President. 

The Trustees then discussed the FY82 Operating Budget — UM/ 
Boston. Chancellor Corrigan noted that the budget as submitted by 
the campus had been altered by the Regents and was questionable in 
several areas. 

Faced with a $6,000,000 shortfall in the appropriation for 
the Boston Cluster, the Regents had decided to make up the entire

ing Budget

BFA 

shortfall from the budgets of UM/Boston and Boston State and to 
leave the budgets of the Community Colleges intact. 

One of the most serious problems with the budget is the 
transfer of $700,000 from the 08 (Utilities) account to the 03 
(Services and Stipends) account. Unless the Boston area has a 
milder winter than ever before, this could lead to a very criti- 
cal situation. In discussing this matter it was the sense of 
the Committee that additional funding for the 08 account should 
be sought. 

After further discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY82 
Operating Budget for UM/Boston as contained 
in Doc. T81-059, with the proviso that the 
Trustees make a formal request asking the 
Board of Regents to provide assurances in 
writing that further funding will be pro- 
vided for the 08 account. 

UM/Worcester — The Committee then discussed Emergency Medical Helicopter 

Emergency Service — UM/Worcester . Chancellor Tranquada said the Medical Cen- 

Medical ter was seeking "in principle" approval of the service. A feasi- 

Helicopter bility study, conducted by outside consultants, had indicated that 

Service it is justifiable, both in terms of reduction of morbidity and mor- 

(Doc. T81- tality, and in terms of costs and revenues. The matter was of some 

073) urgency because of arrangements with the School of Medicine at 

Boston University. 

Trustee Costin noting that he had also discussed this matter 
as a member of the Hospital Management Board, expressed reservations 
about the establishment of this service. Given the state's fiscal 
crisis and financial constraints under which the University operates, 
the. proposal seemed ill-timed. He stated he believed that the ser- 
vice should be provided by a private hospital. 

Chairman Knowles, speaking as a resident of the Worcester 
area, said that he supported the proposal as no private hospital 
in the area was capable of providing such a service. It was then 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve, in 
principle, the Helicopter AeroMedical 
Service feasibility study contained in 
Doc. T81-073, and to authorize the Chan- 
cellor at Worcester to continue with the 
planning necessary to bring a proposal 
to the Board of Trustees. 

Trustee Costin voted against the motion.

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the August 20th, 

August 27, and September 9th Board meetings. 

President Knapp reported that since the last meeting his President s 
office has been preoccupied to a very great degree by the complex Report 
reorganization process on the Boston campus. However, he identi- 
fied several major areas which will require considerable attention 
during the coming academic year which include a five-year manage- 
ment information systems development plan, the study of trust fund 
management with policy and standards to measure and monitor their 
performance, the further development and organization of a 
development/fund-raising potential, the continuation of priority 
planning on the campuses for the future, and the examination of 
capital budget planning and organization. He also stressed that 
the maintenance of new academic and intellectual initiatives is vital 
to the long-term health of the institution. 

The Board then heard a report from Chancellor Tranquada UM/Worcester — 
which included several announcements from his campus. Chancellor's

FY83 Main- 
tenance 
Budget 
Request 
(Doc. T81- 
060) 



The Chairman asked for the report of the Budget and Finan- 
cial Affairs Committee. Trustee Knowles reported that the Commit- 
tee had reviewed and discussed at length the FY83 Maintenance 
Budget Request and asked Mr. Stine to describe the budget develop- 
ment process and highlight its major components. 

Mr. Stine explained that last February, a group of the pub- 
lic college and University presidents were asked by the acting 
Chief Administrative Officer of the Board of Regents to form a 
subcommittee to develop guidelines for the budget requests from 
the institutions. This subcommittee developed a "formula" as a 
consistent way to request funds in FY83 since the Board of Regents 
would clearly not have the resources to analyze in detail the in- 
dividual budget requests. The formula, which was modified some- 
what by the Regents, used FY81 as the appropriation base and 
allowed institutions to recognize shifts in enrollment and infla- 
tionary costs in an appropriate fashion. He outlined the major 
features of the budget using the tables attached to the President's 
cover memorandum to Doc. T80-060. Trustee Knowles said that after 
carefully reviewing the budget, the Committee made no major modi- 
fications and recommended that the full request of $189,946,557 be 
fowarded to the Board of Regents. It was then moved, seconded and

t- 



VOTED : To approve the FY83 Maintenance Budget Requests 
of the University set forth in Doc. T81-060, 
for submission to the Board of Regents, subject 
to further review and refinement by the President. 

The Committee also reviewed the FY82 Operating Budget — UM/ 
Boston which, Chancellor Corrigan explained, had been appropriated 
as part of the "Boston educational cluster." When the budget was 
finally allocated to the campus, the 08 (Utilities) account was 
seriously underfunded in order to fund the 03 (Personnel) account 
at adequate levels. Although the Regents' staff had assured that 
any shortage in the 08 account will be covered, Chancellor Corrigan 
indicated it was important that the Trustees be aware of this po- 
tential problem. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the FY82 Operating Budget for UM/ 
Boston as contained in Doc. T81-059, with the 
proviso that the Trustees make a formal re- 
quest asking the Board of Regents to provide 
assurances in writing that further funding 
will be provided for the 08 account.

The Committee discussed the proposal of a feasibility study 
for the establishment of an Emergency Medical Helicopter Service 
— UM/Worcester . After the motion was made and seconded, Trustee 
Cos tin, who had voted against the recommendation in Committee, re- 
quested that the study to be undertaken by the Chancellor include 
an examination of using the service of a private helicopter am- 
bulance service. It was then 

VOTED : To approve, in principle, the Helicopter Aero- 
Medical Service feasibility study contained in 
Doc. T81-073, and to authorize the Chancellor 
at Worcester to continue with the planning nec- 
essary to bring a proposal to the Board of 
Trustees . 

Trustees Troy and Tower voted against the motion. 

The item on Trust Fund Management is a request for authori- 
zation to proceed to set up a committee to make a general study of 
trust fund policy and to develop consistent policies, guidelines, 
and standards in the management of such funds. It was then moved,

There was no discussion, and it was moved, seconded and

The other, Trustee Knowles said was that the Trustees should

tion passed as part of the Budget Act. This increase did not, at 
this point, need an explicit vote of the Board. 

Under "Other Business" the Board was asked to consider Re -

By-Laws of the University of Massachusetts Medical Center , and the 
establishment of the Department of Radiation Oncology — UM/Worcester,

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 2:13 p.m. and asked UM/Worcester — 
Provost Smith to present the first agenda item, Revisions to the Revisions to 
Governance Document of the Medical School — UM/Worcester. The Gov- the Governance 
ernance Document (Doc. T79-042) was last reviewed and approved by Document of 
the Board in 1979. The proposed changes consist entirely of re- the Medical 
visions in the structure and functioning of the Medical Faculty School 
Standing Committees in order to meet current needs. Chairman Troy (Doc. T79-042A) 
suggested that the word "qualified" be stricken from Article IV, 
E (i) (b) on Page 19 of the document so that sentance would read 
as follows: 

b. The Admissions Committee shall establish pro- 
cedures for identification and recruitment of 
women and minority applicants consistent with 
Trustee policy on affirmative action. 

There were no objections to this change and upon motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board rescind Article 
IV of the Governance Document of the UMass 
Medical School (Doc. T79-042, approved by 
the Board June 6, 1979) and to substitute 
therefor the revised Article IV contained 
Doc. T7 9-042A as amended. 

Provost Baritz presented the Appointment of Dr. Ring Carde UM/Amherst —

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 2:05 p.m. The first 
item on the agenda was the Admissions and Financial Aid Report from 
each of the three campuses. The admissions picture remains strong. 
Amherst experienced an increase in both freshmen and transfer stu- 
dents and Worcester remained steady. At Boston, as a result of the 
imminent reorganization and conscious policy decisions, admissions 
in both the freshmen and transfer categories was slightly down. 

Financial aid continues to be a problem. Once again the 
percentage of unmet student need increased, and this figure, given 
the uncertainties with regard to federal student aid monies, is 
projected to increase further next year. 

The Position Paper on Financial Aid , which was considered 
next by the Committee, is an outgrowth of the continuing concern 
that the shifting priorities at the state and federal level will 
seriously affect the availability of funds for student financial 
aid. These diminishing sources, Mr. Lyons explained, made it nec- 
essary for the University to reassess its student aid policies and 
priorities. A group of individuals from the campus and the central 
office developed the position paper as information for the Board 
and concluded it with a set of recommendations for Board action.

The recommendations stress certain policies and priorities in 
awarding financial aid; clarify and regularize existing procedures 
and make explicit new procedures; and advocate the need for de- 
veloping additional sources of financial aid and commit the Univer- 
sity to seek them out. 

Trustee Caruso suggested that the term "in good standing" in 
Recommendation 6 be reworded to be more explicit. Chairman Troy 
agreed with the suggestion and Mr. Lyons assured the Committee that 
the change would be made before the Board meeting on December 9. 
Aside from this one comment, the Committee supported the recommenda- 
tions. 

The Committee then reviewed the proposal for an M.A. in Ap- 
plied Sociology — UM/Boston. Provost Greene explained that the 
program results from very careful planning over several years, and 
carries the full approval of the Graduate Council and the Assembly, 
and follows the new guidelines for graduate programs on the Boston 
campus which were approved by the Board. It is a terminal degree 
program designed for in-service professionals and for those with a 
career orientation other than teaching. The proposal has three 
tracks, Corrections, Medical Sociology and Social Research; Correc- 
tions is the first to be implemented. The program is not dupli- 
cated in Boston or anywhere in the Commonwealth and is anticipated 
with great interest. It is to be supported by existing resources. 
Trustee Caruso enthusiastically supported the proposal, noting her 
strong support of the internship/practician component. 

On motion made and seconded, it was

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS A&SA 

12/2/81 

The Committee on Academic and Student Affairs finds no 
procedural error which would warrant asking Chancellor Tranquada 
to reconsider the tenure case of Dr. William Burke. With respect 
to the specific claims raised by Dr. Burke which are within our 
purview, we conclude as follows: 

(1) The Composition of the Department Personnel Action Com- 
mittee . The establishment of a personnel committee at the de- 
partmental level consisting of three senior faculty members was 
not inconsistent with Article III, Section 3.1 (a) of Doc. T76- 
081. Nothing in the record indicates that the establishment or 
activities of the Faculty Personnel Action Committee violated 
Article III, Section 3.1 (b) . 

(2) Inclusion of the Department Chairman in the D.P.A.C. The 
participation of a departmental chairman on a departmental person- 
nel committee is not forbidden by Doc. T76-081. 

(3) Failure of D.P.A.C. to Weight Tenure Criteria . Article 
IV, Section 4.1 does not require that relative weight be assigned 
to each of the three substantive tenure criteria. 

(4) Failure of D.P.A.C to Present Clear, Complete and Convinc- 
ing Case and Bias . We find no failure on the part of the Depart- 
ment Personnel Action Committee to present a clear, complete and 
convincing case under Article III, Section 3.1, nor can we find 
bias in the report of said committee. 

(5) Violation of Academic Freedom . We agree with the Tenure 
and Grievance Committee that the tenets of academic freedom in 
Doc. T76-081 do not prevent review of a faculty member under Arti- 
cle IV, Section 4.2 (a).

and the bill is now before the House. Also, the Board of Regents 
had voted to abolish the Board of Trustees of Boston State Col- 
lege as of January 24, 1982. 

The Council of Presidents of public colleges and universi- 
ties is cooperating with the Board of Regents in developing a

demic and Student Affairs. The Committee had met twice since the 
last Board meeting, on November 20 and December 2. At the first 
meeting, the first item of business was Governance Document Revi - 
sion — UM/Worcester. The revisions pertain to changes in the 
standing committees of the Medical School faculty. The revisions 
had been approved at all appropriate levels. The Committee had 
suggested one change in the language of the revisions which was

At the Committee's second meeting on December 2, Trustee 
Troy continued, admissions and financial aid at the three cam- 
puses had been discussed at length. 

At Amherst and Worcester applications for admission and the 
number of students who actually enroll are still high. There has 
been a decline in applications at Boston. This is the result of 
the turmoil and confusion surrounding the merger with 3oston State. 

In discussing financial aid it was learned that that decline 
in federal student aid is having, and will continue to have an im- 
pact of the University. This decline could lead to an increase in 
enrollment based on students who can no longer afford to attend 
private institutions. However, it could force some of the Univer- 
sity's low income students to drop out. Each of the three cam- 
puses is trying, in a variety of ways, to forestall this eventual- 
ity. At the medical school some students on graduation have debts 
of $30,000. For this reason fewer of the graduates are going into 
family practice, one of the missions of the School, and are choos- 
ing more lucrative specialties. 

Trustee Troy said that the 3oard was being asked to approve 
eight recommendations regarding Financial Aid „ designed to enable 
the University to cope with this unfortunate situation. The rec- 
ommendations covers such matters as priority for in-state students, 
while still maintaining the commitment to a diversified student 
body, and development of a formula for the allocation of federal 
and state funds among the campuses. Board approval of the alloca- 
tion of the funds, authorizing the President, on recommendation of 
the University-wide Allocation Committee to reallocate as much as

10% of the funds without further Board approval. Each campus is 
to develop its own financial aid policy and eligibility for finan- 
cial aid. Assurance of fiscal accountability and an effort by the 
University to seek new sources of funds. 

The Committee, at Trustee Caruso's suggestion, had re- 
worded the sixth recommendation regarding eligibility. In the 
original formulation any student, in order to be eligible for fi- 
nancial aid, would have to be "considered to be in good standing." 
This had been changed to "considered to be making satisfactory 
progress." It was then moved, seconded and

UM/Boston- 
Master of 
Arts in 
Applied 
Sociology 
(Doc. T81- 
078) 



Trustee Troy then asked for Board action on the proposed 
Master of Arts in Applied Sociology — UM/Boston. The program fully 
meets the policy for graduate programs at Boston; that is, it is 
career oriented, and not just oriented to a teaching career. In a 
field where there are job opportunities, it includes an internship 
component and it is a terminal degree. The program will eventually 
have three tracks — Applied Sociology of Corrections, Applied Medi- 
cal Sociology and Applied Social Research; however, the program will 
begin with only the Corrections track. 



Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To establish the Master of Arts Program in 

Applied Sociology at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston as described in Doc. T81- 
078, subject to the concurrence of the Board 
of Regents. 

President Knapp asked leave to point out that a new consulta- 
tive process is now being developed. The process will provide that 
before any proposed graduate program comes to the Board, any campus 
that might be affected by the program will have been consulted. 
Questions had been raised about this matter in the past. 

Trustee Troy concluded his remarks by noting that the Commit- 
tee had gone into executive session to discuss a grievance case in- 
volving tenure at UM/Worcester . After careful consideration, the 
Committee voted to deny the appeal of the grievant that the Chancel- 
lor further review the decision of not awarding tenure. 

Trustee Knowles , speaking for the Committee on Budget and 
Financial Affairs, said the Committee had met on December 1. The 
first item dealt with was FY83 Capital Outlay Requests . After 
due consideration, the Committee had agreed to recommend the re- 
quests to the Board. It was then moved, seconded and

The Committee then discussed at some length, Renovation of 
the Curry Hicks Cage— UM/Amherst . The "Cage", the almost univer- 
sal name of the Curry Kicks Physical Education building, was built 
in 1931. As far as is known, the structure has not been renovated 
since 1957. Understandably, it is in very poor condition. In 
order to support the athletic program at Amherst the building 
should be renovated to accommodate a variety of sports. To this 
end the Committee recommended the allocation of $120,000 to the 
Building Authority in order to get drawings and specifications for 
the renovation. After discussion it was moved, seconded and

matter which the Committee recommended to the Board. Without dis- 
cussion it was moved, seconded and

Under the heading of Other Business, the Board next heard 
a progress report from the Commission on Telecommunications. 

At the conclusion of the report, Chairman Quinn called for 
discussion of Personnel Policies for Non-Academic Professional 
Staff — 43 Week Work Contract Policy and Additional Compensation 
Policy . 

In discussing the 43 week contract, Ms. Byrne noted that 
such contracts were already authorized for faculty members. The 
policy was designed for staff in areas where there are seasonal 
needs, for example, certain student support services were more 
closely geared to the academic year than the calendar year. It 
was then moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To approve the 43 week work contract policy 
for professional non-academic staff as set 
forth in an attachment to Doc. T73-090A; 
further, to authorize the Administrative Sec- 
retary of the Board to incorporate said policy 
in the University's Personnel Policy for 
Professional Non-Academic Staff. 

Trustee Robsham abstained. 

The additional compensation policy, Ms. Byrne said, would 
also bring the professionals more into line with the faculty. 
She stressed that it would not be compensation for overtime, such 
a concept did not apply to the professional staff. Chairman Quinn 
asked if it would be possible for an employee on a 43 week con- 
tract to be hired during the period not covered by the contract, 
under the provisions of the additional compensation policy. Ms. 
Byrne said that this was possible, however, all those involved 
were aware of this and would take steps to insure that this would 
not happen. It was then moved, seconded and

Chairman Knowles convened :he meeting at 1:10 p.m. and Personnel 
called for discussion of Personnel Actions . President Knapp said Actions 
the document, which the Board had dealt with at its last meeting, (Docs. T81- 
had been revised. With the passage of the management pay bill, 082 and 
the salaries of Messrs. Solomon and Brand were no longer overscale 083) 
and their names had been deleted from the list. Also, the salary 
proposed for Mr. Stine had been reduced to $46,000. The President 
said that he still believed that the higher salary first recom- 
mended was not exorbidant for the chief financial officer of the 
University. 

The Committee then considered the personnel action for Ms. 
Wyatt at UM/Worcester . Chancellor Tranquada said that Ms. Wyatt 
was receiving a major promotion, which she had earned by her su- 
perior performance. Also, the salary proposed was at the bottom 
of every scale at hospitals as complex as the Teaching Hospital. 
Chairman Knowles noting that he had served on hospital boards, 
agreed that the salary was, by comparison, modest. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
personnel actions for those individuals 
listed in Docs. T81-082 and T81-083, as 
revised. 

The Committee then considered Appointment of Vice President 
for Management . President Knapp said that this promotion would

greatly increase Mr. Stine 's responsibilities as described in the 
supporting document. The President noted that Mr. Stine deserved 
such a promotion. 

Trustee Baldwin suggested that the proposed title was 
somewhat nebulous. After discussion, it was agreed that the title 
should be Vice President for Management/Fiscal Affairs. It was 
then moved , seconded and
